To install any OS you need the software first, how else are you going to install it?

You would need to install the application on both OS's independently of each other. For example, if you were dual booting XP and Windows 7, you would need to install Office on both instances, you cannot install it on one and access it from another.

Given the fact that you obviously have never done this you might want to use a 3rd party application to do partitioning and install the various OS's.

One I particularly like is System Commander

No, it isn't free but you aren't going to find any "free" solutions that are going to work well.

Yes you would need to reboot the PC to switch OS's.
