    I have a iTunes gift card that has around $20 left, and I want to get Mac OS X Lion (which is $30). So I think I must link my credit card to my account and then $19.99 will be taken from the leftover gift card and then another $10 will be charged from my credit card?

    If that's what happening, then is there a way to buy Lion and have the money charged from ONLY my credit card?

    AFAIK, it will always take balance from gift cards, etc before charging to your payment card.
    If you want to charge the full amount to your CC, the easiest way is to buy a $30 gift card with your CC and add it to your account
