Expand RAID-10 Space for T420 Server With PERC H310

Currently I have a T420 server with RAID-10 using a PERC H310. There are 4 500GB physical drives in 2 SPANs. Total 1TB space.  How do I expand to another 1TB (2TB Total)?

1) I see there are 4 empty drive spaces with blank covers. Can I add 4 new 500GB drives to expand the space to 2TB total?

2) Can I buy 3.5" SATA caddy trays and use standard SATA drives? Can I hot insert these drive in the server?

3) I already installed Del OpenManage software. Can I use this software to expand the RAID-10?

Please advise.

Thanks.
