We are planning to purchase a Fortigate 600D as it has 2 X 10 GE SFP+ interfaces. We will be terminating a 1Gbps ( fiber link) from the ISP on one of these 10 GE interfaces. My question is
1) Can we modify the speed on these interfaces to run at 1 Gbps assuming the other end also supports it?
2) Can we terminate the Internet connections on any of the available ports on the Fortigate or are there dedicated ports ?

1) don't konw !
2) yes, for example I'm currently using on 100D as alternate WAN a tagged vlan on port 4 with a 500Mb Fiber Link
2 FGT 100D + FTK200
3 FGT 60E
some FAP 210B/221C/223C/321C/421E

1: No, 10G is 10G. Speed on SFP need to match speed on port, and you can't set the speed on the port, it is fixed. But the 600D has 8 gigabit SFP slots, why not use one of those?
It is still better to terminate the ISP fiber in a switch first, that gives you most options.
2: WAN or not doesn't matter, you can use any port.
