I can help with the first question:

Put R commands just as you would enter on the command line, or in a file
that you would source() into somefile.R.  Then 

R --no-save --slave < somefile.R

Take a look at "man R" for some details on command line options.

PS: You'll need to provide some more info on your second question such
as how you are trying to install (from source or from binary) and what
specific errors you are encountering.
