    Question 1
    can i put boot camp on the 1TB HDD?
    No, Windows will only boot from the internal drive not from the drive you place in the Optical slot.

    Question 2
    is there away to set up my macbook like i want it but keep all my data?
    Sure. Just use Time Machine to make a backup or cloning software. (Carbon Copy Cloner $40.00)

    Question 3
    will the SSD help with rendering i do a lot of video editing for work so need a faster prosesing time?
    No. The SSD has nothing to do with CPU speed and graphics which are the two components that are primarily used in video editing and processing. An SSD will give you faster reads and writes and boot up.
