I have a 1TB unit and i want to buy a 2TB, does the time machine recognize both as a 3TB unit? Would i have to throw out my 1TB?

    No time machine would see 2 drives - the 1TB and the 2TB and you can only select one drive to be the backup drive at any time. You could do a backup on 1 disk and then switch to the second and perform another full backup which keeps the first one available for redundancy as the TC doesn't support any form of RAID.
