 We are moving all of our reporting to a SharePoint site - but since our target group consists of many different groups, we need separate Teams for communication. Can we do that? Most of the files should be accessible to all - only the communication needs to be separated.

If you don't want to touch security configuration per Team and you have a requirement of different people accessing different reports, you might consider to create more than one Team so you will end with more than a SharePoint Site to store those reports

But I need to have control of where my files are stored - and if I have multiple SharePoint's it will be difficult to remember where I put which files.

You can add additional SharePoint sites to the files tab of any channel. Instructions are here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/add-a-cloud-storage-service-to-teams-4e1e1a12-21ae-4616-b53...

Can't I do it the other way around? We have all our files in one single SharePoint, but we need to separate the communication in different Teams or Channels?

Yes, just create Teams/Channels as you need and add for each of them the existing SharePoint site as additional cloud provider.
