Yes you can, but just don't rely on it (i.e. back up your data first!). The partitions should be adjacent, and for ease's sake you want to be expanding into a partition that comes AFTER the one you want to expand. Then just use parted on the device, delete both partitions (e.g. sdb1, sdb2), create a new one that spans the entire space, and use resize2fs ...

You can do it, but be careful. Use resize2fs to resize the partition, then you can adjust the partition to match using cfdisk. It's always easier to grow a partition than it is to shrink it, if you don't specify the final size then resize2fs will grow to fit.

For your specific case, I think that option n.1 (block device copy) coupled with ddrescue is the way to go. Anyway, let ...

What you suggest shouldn't be done online, as it's error prone and possibly dangerous. You need to resize partitions to do that, you likely lose data when trying to mess with the partition your system's root filesystem is placed on. This is what that check is for. Use a livecd with gparted to resize your partitions, then setup an encrypted filesystem in the ...

After you've set up your partitions and the system creates them, you then come to the package selection screen. Here, you can press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to switch to a virtual console with a root shell. You can then reformat the partition to your liking. Press Ctrl+Alt+F6 to return to the installer when you finish.
