    If you are dual booting, performance of one system or the other is not changed.

    You can only have 4 primary partitions with MBR partitioning. You can delete your d: partition if you are sure it is empty and convert it to an extended partition. Extended partition is a container for logical partitions and you can create all the additional partitions you need and Ubuntu will boot from logical partitions.

    Wrong

    If you install Ubuntu inside Windows (Wubi install), you might have a performance penalty; if that performance penalty is really noticeable is another question. With Wubi, you install Ubuntu in a file on one of the drives.

    If you forget about the term 'drive' and only think in partitions, you can install Ubuntu in the partition that Windows calls 'drive D:'. In that case it will be alongside Windows.

    Follow Oldfred's advise and read the links that he provided.
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.
