You might want to contact the dealership or look into your car's manual. Unless someone else here has experience pairing with Ford Sync. That software is known to be finicky connecting to phones.

I'm fairly certain I have paired my old S5 to Fords sync system. Unless there is something that changed it should work fine. Its usually pretty straight forward, put the vehicle into pairing mode through all the prompts, search for it on your phone, confirm the passkey that pops up on the vehicle, and away you go.

You can't have more than one device connected to phone audio or call audio. You can have multiple devices (I currently have my watch, my fitness tracker and my headset all connected) but they can't share the same audio outputs. You can see it here, :
