No, that's the job of the expansion card.
Does my motherboard have to be equipped in any certain way to be handle USB 2.0
Depending on what type they are they could be for a case which has front USB ports or they could be for USB devices that fit into a vacant drive bays like a mutli-format card reader (speculating slightly here) and there is some talk of (internal) CDROM drives going USB in the future. (see http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/usb-boot.mspx)
what are these internal ports for?
That depends on how big the USB addon card is - but since you later say your AGP slot is vacant that implies your video card is PCI so you could swap it to a more open position if the USB card blocks the fan. And to answer the next question - you can only use AGP slots for AGP video cards. The slot is (should be) keyed so you wont be able to plug anything else in there even if you tried.
The only PCI slot I have available is directly below my video card. If I use this open slot, will that interfere with the cooling fan on the video card?
