    I was wondering if it's possible to have a shortcut for a specific website as a shortcut on your home screen, does anyone know if this is possible?

    If you use a browser from the Market, such as Dolphin HD, you would choose "Dolphin Bookmark" from the shortcut list.

    Yes, use FolderOrganizer. Take a look at my Beginners Guide in the Tips & Tricks section.
