When you install a new program , Yes! With the old programs you can use a file mover. But would probably be easier to uninstall the program and then reinstall it to D:.
 If you are running out of room on the c driive, you may want to increase your partition if you have it??

No. The program files location is a systemwide setting and is not configurable on a user by user basis. You can have some applications installed for a specific user and they can be on D: but the system defaults to C:.

Do you want specific programs to be only accesible to a particular user?

As a workaround, I suggest yo make a private folder in drive D: When the user of that folder installs new software he can install it to that folder or a subfolder thereof.  For old installations, just uninstall them and reinstall as appropriate.
