Try Handbreak for backing up DVD's

Yes you will be able to add multiple backups to the one drive each from a different box/device

Don't you mean the magnify effect? If so, click on the Apple logo on the menu bar, choose Dock > Turning magnification on. Also, you should check out the links that eawmp1 suggested. I just got my Mac a month ago and the support links have helped me tremendously.

Seriously though, Apple has plenty of tutorials online and google will get you answers quicker than posting to a forum.
