1) I have a splitter window, with two columns.   I want to share vertical scrolling, but I want the right side to
have independent horizontal scrolling.  From my understanding, if you share scrolling between two views of a splitter window, you must share both ver + hor.  So I currently have the  two as scrollviews and handle scrolling completely independently.  My question is this, The Left side will not have a horizontal scrollbar. but the right side will.  Hence, the left side Vertical scrollbar is Taller than the Right side because of this.  How can I make the left side vertical scrollbar the same height as the right side scrollbar?

Sorry, but you can't easily. The default scrollbars on a window will be the size of the window. You cannot change this. However, if you are doing scrolling yourself, there's no reason why you can't create a child scrollbar that looks like the regular scrollbar. Then you can resize that child scrollbar to whatever size and position you want.
