I feel that a 1TB fusion drive will hold plenty of apps. Never needed more than 250GB for all my APPS so far.

Then get the 1TB model.

As long as I keep my photo and music files on external USB drives, things should be fine…

As I said, keep the photos you are working on on the Fusion Drive. Less accessed photos, music files, video files for streaming, should all be kept off the Fusion Drive if you want to preserve its space.

.or should I really try to get a 3TB fusion drive and keep all my photo files on this drive too?

That would be ideal but it is up to you if you wish to spend extra for the 3TB Fusion Drive.

Of course this in addition to the Time Machine drives which I plan to use anyway.

BTW, can I use several USB drives as one single Time Machine volume?

Not that I know of. Why would you want to do that?
