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


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:


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:

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

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