This is not regarding to burning a dual layer DVD but making the DL DVD. If the home movie/video clips cannot fit one single 4.7GB DVD disc, can I use the dual layer DVD disc to make the DL movie? Should I just insert the dual layer DVD disc then the burning software will automatically make the DL movie?

You ideally need to author for Dual Layer so that when you burn it all fits correctly. Dual Layer is just a simple case of fill layer one, then start filling layer two. There has to be a balance between the layers to make it work. You have to make sure that the layer break is positioned correctly, which comes down in part to chapter placement.
You can just author blindly and hope it works, and sometimes it does. More often you will find that you get to to burning you will be told that there is no suitable place for a layer break, and have to start again. Much better to author correctly in the first place.Read my blog here.
Is the Dual Layer DVD RW avaiable in the market so that I can make the dual layer DVD movie by testing?
No RW dual layer discs. You can test the VIDEO_TS folder content using a software DVD media player on your computer, but cannot test a disc burn without actually committing to an irreversible burn.
Reliable dual layer burns require reliable media: Verbatim DVD+R DL discs only.
Reliable dual layer burns require reliable burning software: ImgBurn only.
