A few questions about mini-movie icons. :D

So I am using Photoshop and ImageReady and have been learning how to make a few mini-movies. I have a few questions I hope someone can help me... 
I finally sort of taught myself how to make some where the animation isn't centered, but it takes me forever the way I do it, so...  I'm going to post a few questions and I hope you guys can help me.  Plus I have a question about how to make a certain type as well...

1.  When I want to move the animation lower down the icon, I have to use my down arrow keys and stuff.  So if I wanted it all the way to the bottom it's 21 down, 25 left and then I have to do that for each frame.  Is there an easier way to do this??

2.  Is it true that in order for your animation to play correctly, you only show the bottom 2 frames plus the background image?

3.  How can I make an icon like this? :

Thanks in advance.
