Almost always, this is true; you only get the Chess piece whose square you land on. An exception is called 'en passant', and even here you get to take a piece by landing on the square the piece just moved over. It is a special move involving Pawn takes Pawn that you would have to read about before using.

Can the king move up to a square occupied by a threatened opposing piece in chess?

If by moving up to a square, you mean an adjacent square, yes, as long as the square is not threatened by any opposing piece. This is the only way a King can attack another piece. A King cannot enter any square that is attacked by an opposing piece, i.e. place himself in check. He also cannot castle across an attacked square (king's bishop 1-f1, or queen 1-d1), but it does not matter if the rook or queen's knight squares are attacked, because he does not cross or land on those squares. He cannot castle out of check.

A Bishop captures the same way any other pieces captures, by making a legal move to another square occupied by an opponent's piece. A bishop moves as many spaces as it can along a diagonal line of squares until it comes to either an opponent's or his own piece.
