A better option may be to remove your 80GB drive all together and install Windows 7 on your 2TB drive as an internal. That way, if Windows 7 is successfully installed, you can add your 80GB drive as a 'secondary' drive and avoid the hassle of cloning it.

It's entirely up to you. You can just as easily copy those files from the new drive to a usb drive and replace them later, though the files are not required. Probably a backup program and other stuff - nothing you can't live without.

If you remove your external hard drive from its plastic encasement, you'll find that it is just an internal drive with some protection for portability. It may be an IDE drive, which will make it a very easy internal upgrade.
I don't think that I can do that... My desktop hard drive interface is IDE/PATA and the external hard drive is USB only. To make things worse, my (old!!) desktop does not allow to boot up from a USB device.
