Of course you can. Simply physically add the disks and join them toe the array. The array will have to then restripe, which will take some time

Provided you have a slot for a drive, yes, with some caveats. What OS level are you running and what are you planning on doing with it? (i.e. new partition? expand a partition, which one?)
