You should be able to pair BT dongles with multiple devices. I suspect
that your issue might be lack of support for BTLE from an old dongle.

But just in case:

bluetoothctl;
devices
remove 12:34:56:78:9A:BC
exit

should do the trick, where the hex bits match the device that you want
to remove. [You can also pair and scan from bluetoothctl as well.]
