Print headers & footers are functions of the application requesting the print, rather than the printer itself.  To achieve what you want depends on the capabilities of the applications you are using.  For example, in MS Word you could use a document template with the header and footer defined as tou require.

None that I know of.  Like I said, header & footer formats & content are a function of the application you're printing from, not the print spooler.  You can set defaults for some (most) applications and these will apply regardless of the printer used but (TTBOMK) there's no way of configuring an OS to do what you say you want to do.  Basically, the spooler expects the application to pass it everything it wants to print in a format suitable to be printed by whatever printer is selected and just adds it as a job to the selected printer's queue.
