The redirects are going to be quite a bit trickier, because you are probably going to need to detect an external request and Redirect it, then Rewrite internal requests to index.php so you can serve the information, and unfortunately there are lots of examples here, but this is one of those 'very specific' situations... The following should give you a specific starting point, but you are going to need to work on the Rewrite to serve the information.
I highly recommend testing all code on a test site or in a test directory before trying this live. What I post below should Redirect as you are asking, but it will NOT rewrite so you can serve the information. IOW: This is only a portion of the code you need, and I'll leave it to you (and others) to figure out (or explain) what it does and how to incorporate it with the rest of what you need.
NOTE: Check out the library, links at the top left of the forum pages, specifically, jdMorgan's post about making URLs 'search engine friendly', because it will probably describe what you need to do and what this does most accurately, even if it's not the 'specific solution' to your problem.
