Re: the end of Stir of Echoes, will Tom (Kevin Bacon) now be able to hear and communicate with the dead just as his son is able to do, or, was it just a one time deal that was brought on by Maggie's sister hypnotizing him?

I think it was a one-time connection - he was in the right place at the right time and the hypnosis just opened a channel the girl could use to reach him. Reason why - he only sees the one girl; a city the size and age of Philadelphia, if he has been able to see more ghosts he certainly would have done so.
