[Mahi Rahgozar] "is possible/reasonable to partition the 1 TB drive into two internal disks and instal Snow leopard on one partition solely for the sake of keeping and running FCP7 without too many system related issues"
Sure, you'll need to use the option key at boot or the startup disk menu to switch between them.

[Mahi Rahgozar] "Or should I just first instal snow leopard on this brand new computer and after installing the FCP studio, upgrade to Lion and instal Avid"

It's never a great idea to upgrade an os with apps. Best to do a clean install of lion and then install all your apps. You can install the last version of FCP(7) straight into Lion. I've got some systems with both FCP & Avid running. In the past this would be frowned upon, and in the future it may cause problems... but for the time being I haven't found any issues that I can attribute to having both apps installed.
