If you set it to any core, usually it will balance the load between the two cores, so if core 0 is already working on something and you open something else up, usually it will use core 1 so you see no lag or anythign. That's why they call it dual core !!

It will automatically balance programs on the cores. For instance, if you are trying to play a game and listen to music at the same time.. it will play the game with core 0, and play the music program with core 1.
no, it doesn't do it automatically. it trys to use both cores for all programs rather than split them on to each core

press ctrl + alt + del and bring up the task manager
go to processes, right clock on said program, and go to "affinity"
