In the end it's up to Jack and Aleema, and their vision of the character. So anything is possible. Nevertheless unless she was pretending during that encounter in the original game you mentioned, it certainly appeared that Jul not only has a sexual interest in both genders, but also in pretty much every character in the party.
Well personally, I didn't see that encounter in this light at all. Admittedly, it's been a while since I last played the game, so I might be way off, but I remember the incident as Jul extending her succubusy power over the whole team just to make sure they were incapacitated and not a threat anymore. It's her greatest skill (although she's not a slouch in battle either). Walking around them and touching them to make sure the seduction was deep and complete, that they were under her power. In other words, it was about fulfilling orders and about the team's attraction to her, not the other way around. Not about any particular desire on Jul's side to sleep with any of them (or all of them), although she might not have kicked some of them out of her bed later :D. I think she'd do exactly the same thing if our team consisted of horribly unatractive creatures.
This is one of the reasons I'm looking forward to romancing her in the sequel. I think it'll be very interesting to see how she deals with Elenor and the growing attraction between them. I mean, this is a woman who is probably used to being despised just for being who she is (demoness), but who also knows she can make people want her with only a mental effort. She has so much power at her fingertips, but if she uses it, anything she'd gain wouldn't be real. And when something real starts blossoming between her and Elenor, it's bound to make her a bit nervous. Add to that the fact that she already put her spell over Elenor in the first game and the possible guilt it might trigger...This might be a gold mine for character development.

I don't doubt Chambara is going to be attracted to her and want her for herself. So don't look at it simply as a matter of whether or not Chambara is willing to give a competitor a chance. She wouldn't. Chambara is much more likely to simply tell Elenor, her obedient slave, that she intends to take Jul as a lover, and if Elenor is good, Chambara may share her with Jul for a night or two as well. From Chambara's perspective Elenor is the one who will be surrendering even more of herself by allowing Chambara to take another lover, one who Chambara may choose to share with Elenor when she feels like it. For Chambara it would be a way for her to extend her control over Elenor, and given the way she appears to be wired, I'm fairly certain that would be a big turn on for her. So as long as Chambara feels totally in control, it's doable, but perhaps not in the way some players may prefer.
Again, we seem to see Chambara completely differently. And the extent of Elenor's submissiveness. I think you see them more as a slave/mistress type of relationship, and I see them more as a dom/sub. Sexually at least, because my Elenor isn't submissive at all outside of the bedroom. But even in the slave/mistress dynamic, Elenor's feelings about inviting someone else into their bed would be important, as important as Chambara's. They wouldn't be just dismissed or not even considered like you say. Then the dynamic switches to abusive.
And while I think Chambara might be attracted to Jul (she is very, very hot like you said), I don't see her ever sharing Elenor with anyone. She spent half of the game being jealous about Elenor's connection with Loren and I haven't flirted with the Princess once. And when I did, Chambara made sure to voice her displeasure(in her own way).
