I'll try to answer 1 & 2.

1. If you still have trouble with ASTER importing after trying a newer 
version of GDAL, a workaround is to use Hypercube or Multispec. Both 
are free programs. Hypercube is from the US military; Multispec is from 
the Purdue University LARS lab and NASA. They will read in the HDF 
files and allow you to resave the files in other formats. This might 

2. The way GRASS changes map/image projections, datums, etc is to...
      a) create an import location in the projection and datum of the 
map/image you want to import
      b) import the map/image into the location
      c) create a destination location in the projection and datum you 
want to reproject the map/image into
      d) working in the destination location, use r.proj or v.proj 
(depending on whether the map/image is raster or vector) to reproject 
the map/image from the import location to the destination location.
