If you set the attributes of the function to listable, it will do it 
automatically. See The Book, p. 272 for an example. Otherwise, try

  MapThread[f, {list1, list2, ... , listn}]

>3) is there any way to "intertwine" two lists?

  Transpose[list1, list2] // Flatten

There's a lot of other ways, but that's fairly simple.
