The title says it all but is there a way to do this? is it as simple as just reinstalling on the partition?

Time Machine and then migration from the backup. Basically you'd need an external HDD.

For iPhoto, simply copy your library onto an external disk. After reinstall put your library back in your Pictures folder, Opt-click Itunes and select library again. Simple as that.
