*winces*
that's a REALLY open-ended set of questions.
first of all, making it a 'good' path animation will depend heavily on what you're using the path for. If you post some sort of video or something, the question becomes more answerable.
for the second question, most of the answer above applies. Besides that however, simply attaching the camera to the path is a good start.

:nod: aww sorry about that. i guess when i finish the animatic for this project i'll post it here and ask again... the right way. the animation consists of a set of simple objects [three guiding posts] reacting to what people do to them. the people wouldn't be seen, just their actions and then the posts' reaction to what they do. i have to incorporate path animation to it somehow. i have trouble setting the attach to motion path and make the object flow the right way within the path.
