I notice there is File History used to backup files, programs, etc. However, I do not see an option to back up my internal hard drive. I have two drives (C: and E:). C: drive has all my documents, settings, programs, files. I have my music, video, pictures on the secondary internal drive D. When using the File History backup in Windows 8, I do not have the option to backup what is in my D.

in Windows 8, the backup options are a little hard to find.  See this article:  http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2012/12/using-windows-8s-hidden-backup-to-clone-and-recover-your-whole-pc/

No, it does not support internal drive. for internal drives you need third party software.

Possible. Use the command line elevated (rightclick cmd.exe and select "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR") and fire for example
WBADMIN START BACKUP -backupTarget:x: -include:d:
That would backup the d: drive to drive x: - x: could be an external drive/internal partition or network drive.
