Yes you can count points into polygons. On this training material you have a couple of alternatives to counting points inside polygons. You can actually do more than just counting, on those examples you'll see that you can do other aggregate operations like averaging or getting the maximum value of one of the attributes of the aggregated geometries. Maybe ...
To do this I would use the Union tool to calculate the overlap relationships between polygons. I would then use arcpy.da.UpdateCursor to iterate through each polygon and add up the ranks/weights of any polygons that overlap in that area.
I think dwell time and trajectory are more appropriate words for this. See "Estimating the most likely space–time paths, dwell times and path uncertainties from vehicle trajectory data: A time geographic method". -- Tang J, Song Y, Miller HJ, Zhou X (2015)
