Yes you can, please ignore the previous post, although only one of the drives can have the Operating System on it.

I'm typing this on my Dell Inspiron 15R N5110, with a 120gb SSD installed where the original HDD was, Win 10 installed and the old HDD drive in a caddy bought from E-Bay and installed in my DVD drive bay. I use the old drive to store all my Music, Photos, Documents etc on keeping it seperate from the OS drive.

The old DVD drive is in a USB caddy which I can plug in and use if required.

No.  You can have only one drive in the system.
