I can answer the second question..

It's fairly simple to change the background using gconf..

$ gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename \
 --type=string /home/daniel/quake3.png

There are a lot of other options that you can set as well as
picture_filename, to list the options run:

$ gconftool-2 -a /desktop/gnome/background

Not sure if the gconf keys are the same in gnome 2.0 but once you list
the keys it should be obvious what you need to set etc...

Hope that helps..
