I think you can download stuff...me and my cousins each bought a few of the expansions and traded them so we didn't all have to go out and buy the same one. Now that the Sims 3 is so big, I'm actually finding it quite hard to find any more of the Sims 2 games...though thank god I bought all the ones I wanted before.
Personally, I recommend Seasons and Freetime, and maybe University. Pets is alright if you're really animal-oriented, but Seasons and Freetime definitely give you a lot of...well, expansion in the game. Nightlife is pretty good too, 'cause it gives you cars and whatnot.
And no, you don't have to create new towns. The expansions just add right on to your pre-existing games. :)
