    The black slot is usually PCI-E 16x. You can tell if you see only two sections, a small near the computer case and a large after (see picture below). AGP would have three sections, about the same size. Installing a discrete graphics card automatically disables the onboard graphics in most motherboards, so you don't need to go into BIOS to do it manually. In some motherboards you can keep the onboard enabled to use it for multi-monitor setup, the discrete card takes priority by default (is the one to give picture to the monitor during boot). OF course you will have to install new graphics drivers for your new card. Go directly at nVidia or AMD to get latest drivers. Do not rely on DVD-ROM or Windows Update.

    You cannot swap onboard graphics, but you can add a new PCI-E graphics card. There is no need to be something expensive, the entry level nVidia or AMD should be OK and faster than Intel.

    Yep, your best bet is to install a graphics card in the computer that you want to upgrade.

    Looks like you are able to upgrade, no need to change the graphics card, it's built in to your motherboard and cannot be removed, it's not going to affect adding another one though, you'll have to get a graphics card that is small enough to fit inside that case, I've circled your graphics card port (it is PCI-E x16) on your picture:

    If you buy anything between the entry level and medium graphics card, you shouldn't have space problem. If you buy medium to high end you will also need a new power supply.
