>2.  Is there a function which helps find a matrix... projection operator

I don't really understand what dou you want...
The expression of the projection operator on subspace engendered by a 
matrix X is:
where Dn is a diagonal matrix of row weight and (t(X)%*%Dn%*%X)- is 
generalized inverse of (t(X)%*%Dn%*%X).
In multivariate regression analysis you use:
But if you want a regression without term a (i.e. orthogonal to 
vector (1,1,...1), you must centered matrix X.

Is it what you want ?
