  • Actually, you ask two questions here and both of them have already been answered at this site. However, if you can describe your scenario more precisely we might help you more

  • @lemonslice kindly provide the link to the second answer as well, which would be useful for others who may come across this question.

  • The default installation path for installing the system, or for installing individual programs with apt? Needs clarification

You cannot really change installation path as unixes use a fixed file system hierarchy. To understand the file system layout in elementary OS you can see https://askubuntu.com/questions/138547/how-to-understand-the-ubuntu-file-system-layout (Ubuntu and elementary OS share the same layout).

As of installing on multiple disks, you can mount them as part of your file system.
