The above operations can be accomplished by using an external program
called devilspie (sudo apt-get install devilspie). Once you have it
installed, you'll need to read the docs in /usr/share/doc/devilspie
where you'll find an example config file etc. - it's pretty easy to
set up.

Yes you can do this via the settings dialog(s) found in the settings
