You just drag the music into iTunes and sync. Are you having problems getting it to work?

If you're asking for an alternative to iTunes, there's these:

Stock: You can use an app such as DropBox or AirSharing to drag and drop, but the music will only show up in that app; it will not show up in your iPod app.

Jailbroken: You can bypass iTunes and drag and drop music with PwnTunes. It will show up in your iPod app. It's $12.

It takes an awful long time. Is it meant to backup as well during this time
Yes. The backups take longer if it's been a long time since you backed up. You can use iCloud backups instead of iTunes if it bothers you. iCloud automatically backs up once a day from the phone itself. Set it up under Settings. iTunes will no longer do it, so it will make syncing faster.
