"en masse" is simple enough to translate to Spanish as they are both rooted in Latin. In Spanish you would simply say "en masa"

In English it means something like "as a group/whole." and you could also probably use something like "en conjunto" to get the same meaning but not necessarily the same effect.

I'm a native english speaker and i've never heard 'en masse', but a crowd is "una muchedumbre" or you can say "las masas" to refer to the masses of people. To say there were a ton of people you could say "Había mogollón de gente"
