Problems with Apple ID & iCloud!

Hi everyone,

I need some advise on what's best for me with the situation below:

- i have a primary Apple ID with which I use mainly for everything on my Mac and iPhone and iPod

- in 2009 if not mistaken I decided to try out MobileMe and I was given an email with But after a while I decided not to proceed with the subscription so I just left it be.

- now I would like to have an Apple email possibly with my current username with (I actually have the same username for both and

For my ID (which is not my primary ID), Apple has reserved me the username I want (which is my name). But, I wanted it to be associated with my ID. If that's not possible then I am ok using the one Apple reserved for me with my ID.

Now if I'm gonna do that, I would have a problem with my bookmarks, photo streaming, etc which can only be done using my primary Apple ID (

And if I'm gonna add another email to my, I would have to choose another username and then end up having 2 Apple emails?

Can I actually have 2 Apple IDs for all my devices, one as the primary which I will use for everything except email. And another just for email.

I hope someone can give me the best possible solution.

Here's my devices details:
MBP with OSX 10.8.2
iPhone with iOS 6.0.1
