I used to use Partition Magic. I don't know how good it is today, since they were bought by Symantec.

If at all possible, try to obtain another machine for Linux. It is much better than dual boot.

It's all preference. PM is good for people who need that gui feeling.

i prefer acronis disk director suite over partition magic. you can also use a partition manager on livecd's or you can download the gparted livecd whose sole purpose is disk partitioning.
it's likely that you're going to have to resize your windows partition which you're going to need a bit of free space for, and then once you have the free space you can create a partition for linux. itd be good to note that the type of filesystem you'll make for the linux partition is different than the windows filesystem.
