Not quite: “einem” is dative for masculine and neuter gender (einem Mann, einem Kind) and einer is dative for feminine gender (einer Frau). In plural, you don’t have any form of “ein” since the indefinite article is used only in singular: It is the same as in English – “ein” (a) carries also a meaning of “one”. If you want to use a plural indefinite noun, just put it down without an article. But don’t forget that German nouns take -n in dative plural (Kindern).
