Multiple print servers

We are migrating from one print server to another on a smaller network. I have migrated the print drivers using the migration tool to the new server.  I'm running server 2008 R2 with about 40 clients and 8 printers where some printers are only used by certain people.

1. Is there any way, other than group policy, to redirect the clients to the new server ? And how do I match up which printers with which people who are authorized to  use them?

2. On the clients, when you click "Add Printer" and it comes up with the network list, how do you configure where that list is populated from, ie which print server the client looks to to populate?

I have found it easier to use Explorer and do a \\printserver.domain.net\ and the select the printer from the options.  OPur network has hundreds of printers so the add printer can be tedious.
