1. If Clovis is equipped with 2 daggers does that give him 6 dice because of his special ability +1 dice melee and +1 dice melee for the daggers?
Yes. Each dagger rolls three dice: one from the dice value on the dagger, one from the +1 die: Melee Skill, and one from the other Dagger's ability.
2. If I am doing a ranged attack and I have a range of 0 - 2 and I have 2 fatties 1 space away and 1 runner 2 spaces away, can I target the runner, or, am I forced to target the fatties because they are closer? In other words, am I allowed target the zone of my choice?
You can target the Runner. Here's the rule:

When a Zone is chosen for a Ranged Action, ignore any
Actors in the Zones between the shooter and the target. This
means Survivors may shoot through occupied Zones without
danger to either fellow Survivors or Zombies. A Survivor can
even shoot at another Zone while Zombies stand on his own!
Note also that you cannot use additional hits to hit the Fatties. You must choose the target Zone before rolling the dice and all hits must be assigned in that Zone.
