I cannot help with the other question, but for this one: there's a
package remreset.sty allowing that sort of thing:

<http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=running-nos>
/Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/carlisle/remreset.sty

For example, I wrote a document in the report class and, to get figures
and tables numbered consecutively throughout the report, independent
from the chapter, used:

\usepackage{remreset}
\makeatletter
\@removefromreset{figure}{chapter}
\@removefromreset{table}{chapter}
\makeatother

Regarding the situation you describe, the above FAQ says:

"The technique may also be used to change where in a multilevel
structure a counter is reset. Suppose your class numbers figures as
<chapter>.<section>.<figure>, and you want figures numbered per
chapter, try:

\@removefromreset{figure}{section}
\renewcommand{\thefigure}{\thechapter.\@arabic\c at figure}

(the command addtoreset is a part of LaTeX itself)."

Good luck!
