You need to create OU for users and computers and you can apply group policy. In group policy 2 parts are there computer configuration and user configurations.

with regard to Group Policy, designing AD is a detailed subject and isn't going to be easily explained in a forum.

In short, you generally either apply GPOs to entire OUs or to members of security groups within OUs, depending on your intended purpose of the GPO.

with regard to your 2nd question, I recommend creating a separate question for that in the appropriate section to ensure you get good advice.
System recovery isn't really designed for what you are asking for, as it is for backups/restores, not image distribution.
