Can yopu set up a raid array on a system that has been running without one simnply by installing a new hard drive, same as the old one and "activating it", or do I need to start from scratch?

Yes you can. It will have to sync all the data from one drive to the other which can take ages so be sure there is no need for the computer.

what kind of raid set up are you after
1.mirror when both drives have the same data

2. or do you intend to split the data between
both so getting better read times

so raid 1 or raid 0
