You can swap a single breaker for two mini breakers or you can add a sub-panel. If you only need a couple of extra circuits then just add mini-breakers.

Is it safe to have 200 plus amps in breakers inside than 90 amps on the main service breaker outside?

I am assuming by your description that the panel is protected by a 90 amp breaker and the breakers in the panel when added up is 200. This is okay as long as your 90 amp breaker trips on a regular basis. It is typical for the breakers to add up to more than the main breaker under the assumption that you would rarely be running each circuit at its maximum capacity.

New breakers can be purchased separately, and simply snapped into place in the modern breaker panels. Turn power off to panel before removing breaker panel plate. If you do not know what you're doing, save your life and hire an electrician to do it.

Can more wires be ran from the meter base to supply a shop from your house?

No, you cannot put but one set of wires in a meter base. The way to go about this, is to mount an outside panel beside your meter base. Panel sized to existing house service, equipped with two main breakers. One to re-feed the house panel the other to feed your shop.

Can you use mini breakers instead of regular breakers?

Yes, but only use them if absolutely necessary and I would never install more than one set of min-breakers in a service panel. Otherwise you can overload the panel.
