You mean internal hard drive? You can not use internal drive for TM. You need external ones.
For partitioning use the disk utility and specify the number of partitions and click apply

Yes, unless you use a third party app. I have heard about iPartition, but have not used it. Not free. I'm sure there are others, but I have not used any so cannot give recommendations.Mary
