The way you install a second HDD depends on whether it is the IDE or SATA type, please advise us of the type, if you don`t know please provide the computer details as in brand and model name or series (not serial) number so we can do some research.
Another more convenient option is to use an external USB HDD enclosure as seen @ http://www.newegg.co...rnal-Enclosures or an adapter such as http://www.tigerdire...0658&CatId=3770 these are only examples and not recommendations to purchase, let us know if this helps and which way you wish to proceed.
Not recommended, it will cost very little and take next to no time to replace a CPU fan but the same cannot be said for replacing a fried CPU.
Or would it be ok to run the computer without the fan long enough to get the data off the hard drive?
EDIT: Additional info added.

Good luck and let us know how you get on or if we can assist in any way, remember stay safe, turn the power off and disconnect the power cord from the wall before opening up either PC.
