Running into some bumps

I'm looking for help/suggestions with two issues I'm running into.

One - I have a couple large t-shirts that I'm planing on making more fitted. Yet I can't seem to find any tutorials or advice on how I can change the shoulder seam. The large ones are the kind where the body is just a rectangle and the sleeve is sewn onto that, whereas the one I'm tracing off of has the sleeves set into the body (girly cut shirt, basically). If I just sew up the sides and bottom of the sleeve, it's still not going to look odd with those shoulder seems down my arms. Help? NEVERMIND. Somehow I missed the tutorial: resize tag and found one that should (fingers crossed) help me get it right.

Two - Some other large shirts have really cool designs on the back that I would love to have on the front instead, but I haven't really seen any designs that seem like they would work. Part of the problem is cutting the high back neck - if I cut it as low as the front, I lose part of the design. Any suggestions for designs that work with the shirt backwards?
