If they won't talk to you about the simple stuff imagine when you have a hard question. Go shop with a company that will answer your questions.

This just means you can buy additional interface boards. I do not know exactly which ones this model can take but generally these are WAN type connections like T1 or E1.

You may want to look at the SRX line rather than the SSG line if you are looking at the larger platforms. I suspect they plan to replace the SSG line since the SRX ones are newer and run junos which juniper has stated for a while was their plan for the netscreen line of products.
