We have a server rack at the moment with two switches feeding the servers its daily dose of network traffic, each of the switches is connected to a separate gigabit feed of which both feeds go back to the main Campus network rack (unknown devices in here but looks impressive with patch panels and around four Extreme Switches).
I would like to connect both of our switches together without creating a storm or loop, I am only doing my ICND1 so unsure what spanning tree is but think its the protocol I am after.
I am planning on replacing both our switches for two Cisco SLM2024. Would connecting these devices to the normal feeds and connecting the switches together be ok? I am just concerned the switches in the campus network rack may not work, I don't know if all devices on the network need STP or if the two connecting need it only? is it a crossover cable if I do? will it speed the network up or just be redundancy if the link feed goes down on one?

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
