You select that on a program by program basis.  Anything you install will ask you where you want it to go.  That is your chance to put it on D:\ or elsewhere.  Alternatively, if you've already installed it to C:\, you could move the folder and then create a symlink with mklink /d to redirect requests to the new location.

Just the latest version, and only what you're actually using. Some of the things that come with motherboard discs or on the website aren't actually drivers that you need, like Intel's Rapid Storage Technology (RST).

If you installed a program to C:\Program Files\My Program and then moved it to D:\My Program, you'd want to run the following command (as admin... I think it needs that)

mklink /d "C:\Program Files\My Program" "D:\My Program"

This would cause the "My Program" folder on your SSD to act just like it always has, ensuring the program continues to operate correctly by acting as a pointer or tunnel to the true location of the files on D:\.  This is different than a shortcut which works more like a bookmark in your web browser - ie, it tell Windows to open a certain file or location, but it isn't functional as an actual path element.

You mean reinstall Windows and then put your programs on the HDD?  Well, yes that's always an option but it seems a bit overkill.

Windows 10 generally does an acceptable job of auto-installing everything you need.  If you notice things don't seem quite right, you can try manually installing from the manufacturer's website but in my experience it's generally not necessary any more.
