can I use my current home as collateral to purchase another home?
You can't "use your home" as collateral. You can use the equity that you have in your home. That means the bank will lend you the amount of profit that they think you would get if you sold your home today. If, as it sounds, you are upside-down on your loan (you owe more than you can sell for), you have no equity, and the bank will not loan you money against your house. Also keep in mind that technically if you do this, and get behind on the loan, the bank can foreclose on the house that the loan is against to recover their money.

Yes, you can use the equity in your home for collateral to purchase another home. You can tie both homes together on one loan, or you can refinance and draw out the equity in your home as cash, and use the cash for whatever you want, includng down payment on an investment house.
