Taking the Z apart isn't hard so long as you have the right screwdriver. Replacing the microdrive supposidly isn't hard either, but you can't install another drive in addition to the one already in there (I can't tell if that's what you're asking or not). You can install uBoot to boot from flash, SD cards, and/or the internal drive and maybe the external one.

I don't think you would want to replace the internal MD on any regular basis, but if you want different distros at the same time, see above. There are instructions for the replacement floating around here somewhere...
