Yep, you can use that code on a PC with Steam.
and...
Nope, you can't both play at the same time.

Yes you can both play each other. Just make sure that you create a "dummy" psn account to link your steam copy with first.

Why not? That's ridiculous, all it takes is the creation of an account, link it, and then you can play Portal 2 with your bro. It doesn't make sense to NOT do it.

But it's up to you

when you play it on PS3, it'll ask you to link to a Steam account, (already existing, or create a new one)
creating a new steam account is extremely easy... they'll just start one for you using your PSN name...
but when that is done, your copy is linked to your PSN account...
however, on the same system, you can have a second account, and open a second Steam account as well, and link the game to that too...

but... on PC, you can only use the code ONCE... and on ONE of all the "alts" that you have on PS3...

so to make it clear:
PS3 you have the following accounts
Main
Alt1
Alt2
Alt3

and you have a SteamMain account you want to use the code on...
that means you have to log into your SteamMain using one of the 4 PS3 accounts...
now if you link it to SteamMain, that means you won't be able to play yourself at the same time, because you're already playing on the PS3, or on the PC... no dual log-ins...

so in order for YOU to have YOUR OWN copy and your brother playing on HIS, he has to create a new Steam of his own, using Main, while you log in on Alt1, 2, or 3 using your SteamMain

and then go on PC and activate the code on your SteamMain, and add your brother's Main Steam account to friends, and voila, you're ready to play...
