>(a) what they recommend for cache_dir sizes (eg: cache_dir ufs

Disk size? pay attention, disk size must not equal to cache_dir size..
For example. if you have 2.5 GB disk.
cache_dir ufs /usr/local/squid/cache 2048 16 256,

don't forget. you should mount new disk with 'noatime' option to increase
for more further look 'man mount'..

yes. you can add these new dirs to squid cache without losing access.
