About that first question.

Following is from maven reference (part: Properties Processing) :

In addition, System properties are processed after the above chain of  
properties files are processed. So, a property specified on the CLI using  
the -Dproperty=value convention will override any previous definition of  
that property.

So you can edit your maven script to find what ever you like properties.
And quick inspect in maven script shows, that it even inspect  
$home/.mavenrc where you can also define something.
