It's not programmed to do any of that. See C-h f.

    find-alternate-file is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `files'.
    (find-alternate-file FILENAME)

    Find file FILENAME, select its buffer, kill previous buffer.
    If the current buffer now contains an empty file that you just visited
    (presumably by mistake), use this command to visit the file you really want.

C-x C-v is used to replace the _current_ file, not to replace current
file with multiple files.
