Default Is this possible?

Hello, I apologise for this I have googled and searched I find that some is possible I just would like the easiest solution if possible please.

Getting a pi.
Would like to download free torrent files.
Would like to play files (mp4 mkv etc)

And would like some sort of jukebox for my backed up music and home movies.

I would like it to download to an external HDD and also be able to play from the same external.

The pi will be connected via LAN.

I've seen some say that 2 SD cards one running xmbc and one running raspian is better?

Like I say apologies but I'm working off a mobile and not a PC.

Just run RaspBMC and install transmission-daemon on it. Problem solved.

I was using both of them, but xbian is just better for me. You can get all of you ask for straight from menu xbmc.
