  about the first question it is better for exam purpose and also in real life to press one time on pain area, so start palpation away from paiful areas and then before pressing on pain area tell sp that u will press deeply and then realease your hand and ask him to tell you which hurts more ,by this way u can test for direct and rebound tenderness and guarding by one press
