Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Certainly possible. You may have to reinstall grub and modify menu.lst/grub.conf or grub.cfg (depending on which version of grub your distro uses) to properly point your bootable kernel (and initial ramdisk, if you have one)
I agree with RockDoctor that you will need to modify Grub. More information would be helpful. You don't indicate what is on the partitions. Are they both Linux distributions or a mix? If both Linux, are you booting from the Grub on sda1 or sda2. If you delete sda1, sda2 will become sda1.
Thank you for your answers, I normally make backups, just in case something does go wrong, theirs something else, I'm surprised, you didn't reply with why don't you just reformat and start again. TO EASY.
Information needed to give you any advice would be partitions information which can be obtained by running sudo fdisk -l command (lower case Letter L in the command). Also when you post, indicate which partition has Ubuntu and which has Mint.
