Deployment Project Questions

I'm not very knowledgeable using Visual Studio deployment projects, but I
have 2 questions.

1. Can you perform SQL server database functions (i.e. Add views, stored
procedures)? I overcame this obstical by writing an application to perform
the SQL commands to create the views and stored procedures. I then added
this as a step in the install custom actions, and this works fine.

2. Can you have it update just the files that change when you install it?
I want to deploy the project with an app.config file specific to the machine
is on, then as I make future modifications to the application, only deploy
the application. That is have it re-install the new app, and leave all the
app.config and other files intact. I haven't had much luck in getting this
to work. If I set it to RemovePreviousVersions as false, it doesn't seem to
replace the program with the new version.

Any Ideas? Thanks for your time!
