You can get an adapter to run a second monitor from a USB port. There are serveral available on amzon and such. Just search for "USB to HDMI Adapter" Assuming your Tablet has a USB port.

Can't be done, not and have your screen extended across them all. DVI including dual link will only supply one video signal. You could split it but one monitor would be a clone of the other. There are USB Video cards that would let you add a third monitor. I've never used one so I have no idea how well they perform.
