Multiple messenger services? Yes. Look at trillian as a solution.
external hard drive: Yes/No. You can copy the data over, but you can't just copy it back to a new pc/laptop/drive and expect it to work. You'll need to reinstall and replace the active data files. Look at Symantec Backup Exec, Norton Ghost, or Norton 360. All three can backup your files properly (I listed the order in which I use/trust the most).
