Lubuntu dual boot, remove Windows
EDIT: Additional question; I've heard of things called "virtual machines" that can act sort of like virtual OSs inside of your current system, except that they don't require you to download that particular OS on your computer. Would it be possible, once I've removed Windows, to set up a Windows virtual machine and run programs through it like I would with Windows, kind of like what I do with Wine (But with hopefully less errors)?
SECOND EDIT: Alright, so I've removed my Windows XP partition with OS-Uninstaller. Now, I need to add that space somehow to my Linux partition. Help, please.

Yeah, you can set up Windows XP (etc.) as a Virtual Machine (or "guest") inside your host Linux machine. You just need the original Windows installation media.
For reclaiming space, show us what you're working with, disk-wise:
# show currently mounted devices dfCode:
# show what gets mounted autoatically cat /etc/fstabCode:
# show connected hard drives, and their partition tables sudo fdisk -l
