There are some big registrars where you can register your own domain, like GoDaddy, DirectI, eNom, etc. Usually you can register com, net, org, info, name, etc. domains there. If you need a country TLD, you might have to search for other registrars (usually in that country).

yes you can... but for this you'd probably need two dedicated ip addresses... well, some domain registrar allow to have the two nameserver point to one ip address... but that's not always the case...
So depending on where you have registered your domain name you will need to have 1 or 2 dedicated IP addresses

Take a look at the DNS section: http://www.howtoforge.com/taxonomy_menu/1/8
That should get you started.
