however im not sure why, but my lite-on dvd drive says "DVD-RAM"

Thats a power saving function that, if you want to, must be turned off in your BIOS. It will drop the multiplier when using low-profile apps. It will kick in again when you game or do anything more intensive.

i was thinking of buying a SATA optical drive, can i use a Hard drive SATA cable and plug it in the sata connections as a hard drive too? or do i need a IDE to SATA cable?

No, I think the SATA cables for hard drives and optical drives are the same.
