this is the dvr i have at the moment for my cctv, as you can see there is one network cable port on the back, so ii can either connect the dvr to the internet and stream everything through the internet, or i can plug in an IP Camera into the DVR and record the ip camera to the DVR, if i plug a switch into this port instaid and then plug both the network cable and the IP Camera cable into the switch, will i be able to do both?, hope this is enough to work off.

Yes, you would normally add your recorder to your network, add your IP cameras to your network, and expect your recorder to find those IP cameras on the network. It'll probably scan your network and look for the MAC addresses of known cameras.
