En=-hR/n^2

For clarification, is this equation only used in terms of hydrogen atoms? If so, is there a more general equation that applies to other atoms?

only applies to hydrogen atoms

Yes I believe this is used to calculate the energy levels in hydrogen and will only work for atoms with a single electron.

Yes, because Hydrogen only has one electron, but if there are multiple electrons then the electrons repel each other and you can’t calculate the ground-state energy of that atom if the electrons are already repelling each other.
