Sadly, your systems limitations due to its age are hard to overcome. I would recommend staying with Snow Leopard (10.6.8), while some people have managed to run newer versions of OS your systems RAM & HD limitations will be hard to run most of the available apps as well as its limitation to 32bit versions.

As for Windows under BootCamp: Windows XP or 7 is about all you can use. You can only use the 32bit versions.

I would look at saving my pennies to buy a newer system (new or used)

I have that laptop, apparently OS X 10.6 doesn't seem to support much apps, so I installed Windows 7 Professional on that laptop. Works very good and lots of apps still support Windows 7.
