1. what i've done is to use a photo editing program (gimp, in my case) and create a new blank image with the same dimensions as my desktop (2880x900) and paste two different 1440x900 images--one on each side--to make wallpaper with a different image on each monitor, or i'll make sure to download the largest size wallpaper and resize it to my desktop dimensions.
2. you need a 3rd party app to have a taskbar on each monitor. display fusion enables this function and even allows you a 30 day use of their pro version (the version that actually enables the taskbar on the other monitor--the free version does not).

(display fusion actually takes care of your #1 issue too--you can either stretch an image across both monitors or have different images on both monitors)
