1) There are many options, but simple is usually best.  Add lines like this to your login script:
    NET USE U: /delete
    NET USE U: \\servername\sharename\%USER%
2) Easily done using RoboCopy.  Create a batch file that can sit on the desktop that runs something like the following:
    ROBOCOPY %HOMEPATH%\Documents U:\Documents /MIR /ZB
    ROBOCOPY %HOMEPATH%\Desktop U:\Desktop /MIR /ZB
You may wish to review the options provided by RoboCopy and select those that best fit your needs.
