Give my great new hard drive a better body.

COMBINING Hard Drives. Roommate has fast, great computer. I have slow, antiquated one with (among other upgraded parts I've procured) a fast new hard drive (personally installed). Want to install my current drive in her current machine so that all roommates can use one system and still keep my files/ preferences.

Two PCs, the better one a factory Dell. I can do the hardware install, but need to know the finer points of combining two computers. When I access mine, will my Firefox preferences and bookmarks prevail? How will I access mine, and what will the UI be? I think I can set the hardware to slave, but after that, what do I need to do? Will it slow her computer down dramatically? I'm relatively tech-savvy but my skills are under-utilized and rarely required so I only know what I've thus far personally encountered. Thanks in advance!
