Yes.

I have the same setup in our house: Time Capsule upstairs, AirPort Express downstairs connected wirelessly to the Time Capsule which then has an old PC connected to it via Ethernet, have speakers connected to the AirPort Express to stream music from the iMac upstairs, also ensures greater Wi-Fi coverage throughout the house.

What's your current wireless router?

It's dead simple using a Time Capsule or AirPort Extreme, you simply set it up to extend the network wirelessly, plug the AP Extreme in and away you go - both devices can be set up from AirPort Utility.

Not sure about the Dynalink, if it doesn't have the ability to wirelessly extend the network then no it won't work.

Apple products work very well together so extending the network is simple and intuitive, plus like you said you'll be backing up your computers as well.
