Sorry that I can't help you with question 1 about the ER diagram feature.

Visio 2010 has a fairly nice autoarrange feature that builds on the one in previous versions.

If you have Visio 2007, try Shape>Re-layout Shapes on the Visio main menu. If you don't like the results, undo, move a few things around and try again.
