Question Newbie question

I have one of the first generation Macbook (Intel Core Duo) and I'm "pimping it out". I have Leopard and may be going to Snow Leopard (we'll see). I'm upgrading the old 80GB hard drive to a 500GB hard drive. I get how to swap out my current hard drive to the new larger one and how to use SuperDuper to do it.

I have several questions though-
1.) For subsequent backups/cloning, how big of a backup drive would I need i.e. how big is the backup file? If I have a 500GB hard drive do I need a 500GB backup drive or can I use a smaller one (80GB or 180GB) or something like that? I will probably also use the backup drive with Time Machine as well (partitioned ofcourse).
2) What file format does the back up drive need to be in (OS Journaled or FAT32?)
3) Does it have to have Firewire or can a USB enclosure work? Is there any benefit to using Firewire?

Thanks in advance
