  1. Yes. Any drive that still has free space on it can be used to store additional data.
  2. You can. However, if it's an old PATA drive, you might have to fiddle around with jumpers. If you have an SSD, though, I guess you're using some more recent tech than that. When you boot into windows, you'll probably have to pick between the OSes, though.
  3. You just gave your self redundancy :).....if the SSD dies, just switch the boot order in the BIOS and ya can boot from the HD.
