If you're still stuck after that though, from what I understand about emachines, you can install a second hard drive but theres no 3.5in bays free in the case. This means you must use a 5.25in bay (CDROM sized bay) with a 3.5in drive bracket. These are available in most computer shops.
If you just wish to replace your existing hard drive however, then space won't be an issue obviously.
The other thing you will have to watch, is that there may well be a limit on the size of drive your system will recognise. (eg 64GB or 137GB max possibly)
Also, if you are using one 5.25in bay for the second hard drive, you will need another spare 5.25in bay for the DVD obviously. Just pop the side off the case & see how many of these bays you have spare.

there are also pay versions of software for moving everything, such as norton ghost.
if you want to move your system files (the OS) over to the new drive and boot from that, you will need to use one of these programs to create an exact copy of the current data on the new drive.
