I bought one month ago Asus G751 JT with 8 GB ram and 1 TB HDD. Can I put in the second slot where is the PCIE Express slot one 1SSD on Pcie connector and 1 HDD/SSD? There are 2 connectors on same drive caddy.

No. Its Two HDD or one SSD and one HDD. The SSD PCIe will be in the same physical space as the HDD would be.

Yes you can do that. Hmscott explained in another thread that you can add a PCIe SSD + a HDD in the first bay by removing the brackets that support them and improvising some sort of system to hold both the HDD and the SSD in place. Using some adhesive band would do the trick. And then you can add the second hdd/ssd in the second bay with it's braket and ... Voila! You will have 3 drives connected.
