Default Connecting two external HDs with eSATA?

Ok, So I have Three external drives, all are Fantom Hard Drives. One is a 1TB USB2 and eSATA Drive, one is a 1TB USB2, eSATA, and Firewire 400, and the last is a 2TB USB2, eSATA, and Firewire 400/800. And I am working on a Mac Pro Quad. Which has plugins for both firewire types but no eSATA.

I am wondering if it would be Possible to connect My 2TB Drive via Firewire 800, and then plug the 1TB Drive that has no Firewire into the TB drive with an eSATA cord. That way the 1TB Can transfer Data faster than if would if it were hooked up via USB

externals do not have an "in" port, they all are "out" ports, to your computer.
