Well, first, it's only fair to tell you that it won't be necessarily cheap... You can try http://www.newegg.com for motherboards at a good price, just let us know which ones you are considering (or if you don't know where to start, let us know and we'll find one for you). As far as installing, it's not hard, just be careful with it. The manual will tell you how to properly do all this.

You need to ensure that the new mobo is compatible with all of the other components you currently have. Also, replacing a mobo often involves a clean install of Windows, so you will need to ensure you have the disks available and that you back up all important info stored on your harddrive.

You may want to consider taking your computer into your local shop and having them take a look at it for you before you order the parts. Although the people on this site have tons of computer knowledge, it is sometimes difficult to diagnose a problem without putting hands-on the system. It may save you some time and heartache, just make sure they are reputable and aren't going to charge you an unreasonable fee to look at it for you.

As long as the drive is not damaged or anything, sure. You can add it as a second drive really.
