Per your System Manual (see pg 24), your system has four SATA ports you can use.
Yes, you can use both an SSD and standard Hard Disk in your computer. Recommended that you reinstall your operating system onto the SSD.

I would look to clone your 120 GB HDD to your 120 GB SDD. Then remove the 120 GB HDD and install the 1TB HDD. Your system power should be sufficient for this operation.

Sure. Just google "Clone HDD to SDD". Several free applications available to do just that.

Don't know. I've never tried dual-booting with each OS on it's own drive.

Worst that will happen is that you won't be able to boot into one of the operating systems.
