The answer to 1) is yes.  Review the topic Customize the Ribbon for Microsoft Dynamics CRM in the CRM 2011 SDK.

Not sure about 2). Is using the existing button to start a workflow not acceptable?

Here is a screenshot with the Workflow button for a custom entity.
The button only shows if there are any activated workflows for the entity.

We would just like to make it slightly more obvious to run a specific workflow than to have users select eh "Run Workflow" button. Are there also any good resources outside of the SDK somewhere online with specific steps on customizing the ribbon?

Well as it happens, this chap http://mscrmtools.blogspot.com/ has a little tool for customizing the ribbon (and a few others).
