like this for example
Arctic Silver Ceramique Thermal Compound

Is this the same a paste? I hear its more better then the stock paste included in cpus. I just remove paste and add to heatsink to cpu only?. Its removeable by rubbing alcohol?.

Can I add this as well to other things, like another heatsink above another? My other mobo has a small heatsink, wonder if i can put another on it with fan to keep it cool.

Yes, you can use thermal paste on ANY heatsink- in fact you should, to give decent conductivity :)

Ah- just saw the HD bit- theres not really an area on the hd that will benefit from a cooler of this type, I believe. Better air flow is usually the best answer :)
