    If I install an MCE/SSD setup in the optical bay, what happens to my old hard drive in the hard drive bay? Can I boot from the SSD in the MCE/optical bay and use the old hard drive as a scratch disk in its current configuration? Or do I need to take additional measures such as reformatting the old drive?

    Exactly. With the OS X installed on the SSD, you just go to System Preferences -> Startup Disk and select whichever as a boot device.
