For the first question, one possibility is the ColorFunction defined as:
ColorFunction\[Rule](Hue[.62+.91#]&),
The .62 starts at blue (since I like to start with blue) and the .91
stops before it returns to full blue. You still get all the colors in
between since Hue does a Mod 1 on its arg.
Or closer to the default:
ColorFunction\[Rule](Hue[91#]&),
which will start at red and not get all the way back to red.
For contour legends, I suggest you try the following
LabelContour.m, which is available on MathSource, is writen by Tom
Wickham-Jones and is discussed in his excellent book: Mathematica
Graphics. Note that the book is written for Mathematica 3 so there are some
differences. The package on MathSource has been updated for Mathematica 4 (and 5).
Good luck
