Can Time Capsule be used to store my music/pictures/video/etc. files first, then back up via Time Machine after?
I would like to use Time Capsule as a replacement for my current external hard drive which stores old files (and have access to it at any time) as well as be the automatic Time Machine back up from now on.

Yes, you can use the same drive for your TimeMachine backups and as your iTunes drive. Both functions happen independently, so music is stored immediately, and the TimeMachine process is triggered periodically.
