No. Educate your users. :-)

No. You can rename the states in the templates - i.e. have them display 
as different names - using as complicated logic as you like. But you 
can't change the flow.

What exactly do you mean by "having them in sync"? You can have two 
Bugzillas, and you can move reports between them (although it's fiddly, 
and they get a new bug number.)
