I have tried that but I get message saying that e-mail address has an invalid character (my e-mail has an '&" in it.

also, when I add an e-mail address to my Mac it also adds to my iPad. In order to be able to use facetime between the two I understand I need to have separate e-mail addresses on each item. How do I stop a new e-mail automatically appearing on the other device under my account

You can't have & in your apple id, in fact I know of know other service that would allow to create an email address that way.
You use your apple id for facetime, you can have muliple email addresses associated with your apple id. One device can use one address, the other device can use another. Technically, both are using the same apple id, but are using different email addresses to sign in with.
Go to your apple id management site to change/add/verify
