I have some music I've downloaded from the internet that is currently in my Downloads Folder on my MacBook Pro.

Do I understand correctly that once I drag and drop that music into iTunes that those files are copied to another folder, and at that point I now have 2 copies of those songs/albums on my MBP? So I'm OK to delete the copy in the Downloads folder without affecting my ability to play that song in iTunes and/or sync it to my iDevices?

If you want to check, right click on the songs in iTunes, and select "View in Finder/Explorer". This will show you which music file is linked with the entry in the iTunes Library.
