    Dual boot guide is here: [Guide] Dual Booting Mountain Lion and Windows 8

    #1. You can do that, but after you're done installing Chimera/Chameleon bootloader, you will not be able to boot Windows, except via BIOS (Chimera/Chameleon cannot boot a UEFI install of Windows)

    #2. For UEFI Windows install, you must use Clover for multi-boot.

    The guide above is for installing Windows as legacy to a GPT/MBR hybrid. You do all partitioning in OS X Disk Utility.
