    As of now you can't have a second hotmail calendar, the phone recognizes only the primary and syncs with it.

    Could I have another hotmail account and get that on my phone? (Along with the first one?)

    Yes, in your settings you can add another account, choose Windows Live, and add another hotmail account. It will show as a "windows live 2" account.
    It's just doesn't do much b/c the phone always defaults to the 'primary' account for calendar, email, etc. So to see your 2nd hotmail email, you have to use the "hotmail 2" button instead of a single 'hotmail' button.
    I have forwarded all my email to my primary hotmail account, including gmail, and just use folders in my hotmail to manage everything.

    I did that quite on accident. I put in both my hotmail accounts in the email settings and suddenly my calendar had all the entries for both.
