I really like these for traveling. Not sure if that is a concern for you:

Logitech > Audio > Speakers > V20 Notebook Speakers

I use two USB powered Altec Lansing notebook speakers. Sound is much better than the internal MBP speakers. I'm mobile 24/7 so powered speakers are not an option for me.

As you have not stated which Country you are living in the second question is difficult to answer.
Generally any large retailer who sells printers and computers would have a range.

Yes, you can. I have the bose Companion 3's and they sound AMAZING.

They connect via your headphone jack.

I've had Logitech's Z-4 2.1 speakers for a couple of years now and have been very pleased with them. (Not portable though) $75 at Amazon.
