    Can we install a Duel Operating System with Windows 10

    If you have a separate license to each operating system you can dual boot. You cannot dual boot with the operating system that is upgraded. The upgrade license replaces the license for the windows version being upgraded. In other words, you cannot dual
    boot with windows 8.1 and the windows 10 upgrade.

  3. Win 10 clean install on existing/added partition

    You can't do this. The upgrade is only allowed as an upgrade. If you want to dual-boot, you have to go to the store and purchase a copy of Windows 10. Upgrades aren't allowed to be converted into dual-boot situations.

    No, your dual boot setup should stay the same.
