Can't help you on the first one...

It is possible to create a raster file holding the output of d.3d by 
using the CELL graphics driver, which writes to a raster file rather than 
a graphics window. However, you are limited to 256 colors, which means 
the 3d image won't look very good unless it is greyscale. The resulting 
raster layer can be plotted conventionally using ps.map or p.map. If you 
would like some more detailed info on using the CELL driver, e-mail me.
