I'm late to the party, but all you really need to do is create your restore DVDs through whatever applet HP provides before you change the partitions. This will provide a safety net for you if something goes awry and also enable you to restore to factory config should the need ever arise (like sending it in for warranty work).

Post a picture of your Disk Management. If you run into "dynamics", you must have 4 primaries - but we have to see that in your Disk Management in order to give you the right steps.

Your manual should tell you. It may be a Control Panel applet, or, more likely, an item in the start menu under one of the various HP folders.

You can use any install disk regardless of version...your product key will work and install the corresponding version.

No. An OEM number is good only for the machine it came with.
