Since your board only has 1 PCI-E 16x slot you cant add another card since a 16x card in the 1x slot would run into the heatsink.

SLI and crossfire are using two cards together to drive a single monitor to improve graphics performance. ATI calls it crossfire, nVidia calls it SLI, they both serve the same purpose, to use two cards to improve performance in games.

Give us at least an hour to reply before panicking.

Modern cards use PCI-E slots, not PCI slots, you wont find any card that fits in a PCI slot that is anywhere near as good as your 9400GT and the 9400GT is pretty weak.

If you need more graphics power upgrade your graphics card to something like an HD 5670, it will be quite a bit more powerful and wont use much more power than the 9400GT does.
