Can I attach a hard drive through usb or firewire to a time capsule drive and back up my iMac automatically to both?

Yes, software will do whatever you tell it to do. Time Machine does incremental backups on the Time Capsule, but perhaps at the end of every week you want to use Disk Utility to backup everything to a separate external hard drive that you then disconnect and put on a shelf out of harm's way. And, Firewire is recommended over USB2, as it's much faster (regardless of the similar specs).
