Yes 8TB drive will work on that PC.
You do not have an option of installing more 3.5" HDD into this workstation internally. It is not a server chassis.
The Max you can have is 5 if you install one in the 5.25" drive bay.

If you have the optional LSi 9361 Riad card then you could route one of the mini-Sas connectors to an external box which houses an HBA and add as many drives as it will hold.

Another option would be to remove the motherboard and install it into a chassis that does have mounting points for more drives. That would involve quite a bit more work, possibly even modifying the new case and wiring, to make work. That motherboard was special to the case you have.
 
If you use NTFS file system to format the HDD then a 16TB limit applies. FAT32 has a 2TB limit.
That system also supports SAS server type drives with 12gbps speeds.
Here's a link to a Dell workstation owners club.

And the Dell owners manual for that.
