Given that you already have a second working laptop AND a SATA/USB converter, you don't necessarily need to buy another drive - you can transfer it directly onto the new laptop (if it has space). Remove broken drive from old laptop. Connect broken drive to the SATA/USB converter. (Note: if the old hard drive isn't SATA, this won't work and you'd need to ...

You can, of course, write small script to do that. But I would rather use some existing tools. Try for example: HTTrack sudo apt-get install httrack

As discussed in the comments, it turned out the real issue was somewhere else - I may try to integrate the useful part here. It is a dialog window of firefox asking you which application to use to open a speciffic kind of file. The choice will be saved for that file type, but it will ask for each file type at the first use.

I'm not 100% shure what your question means, but maybe this will help. you are still able to just run ubuntu from the iso-disk without installing it if you startup from the disk. No harm done then and you have your test if the stuff works.

There is NO "mac" version of Ubuntu. It is just "Ubuntu for either i386 (32-bit) or x86_64/amd64 (64-bit)." Once you have downloaded the requisite file, make sure you have the complete file (check the md5 sum). Then, put it onto a USB stick/thumb-drive using the "longish" procedure outlined here: ...

If it is the 64bit, then it is correct. Unless is says specifically amd64 MAC, then it is correct. here is a link for the 64bit if for whatever reason your computer is not letting you select that http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/contribute/?version=14.04&architecture=amd64

It depends on the software you want to install, can you give an example? For a lot of software there are .deb packages avalible. Download them and install them at home with: sudo dpkg --install *.deb

You just need to download the .deb packages from the providers of the software and place it on a thumb drive. Most (if not all) providers of Ubuntu software will provide the .deb packages somewhere on their site, it's just not always easy to find. Be sure to download the right .deb for your system, x86 for 32 bit and x64 for 64 bit.
