Windows 10 installer creates its own partitons that are necessary and lets u create more if you want to, tbh there is no point of partitoining a ssd unless for easier organisation of files

So you have an ssd with an existing windows install but do not have the efi partition to boot windows?

You can create a new boot partition by following these instructions

Then disconnect your hdd while you install Windows to the ssd.

Once windows is installed reconnect your hdd and use disk management to delete the partitions you dont want on your hdd

No as the windows installer may install the bootloader to the hdd and not the ssd.

If you are not bothered about this then yes install windows with both drives connected.

It would be much easier just to install it on the SSD in the first place.

If you have multiple drives plugged in, Windows likes to put parts of the install on different drives. You'll end up with weird things happening if you just clone drives and copy them to drives that already have parts of Windows. 

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
