Can some features be added to Events?

Two questions:

1. I have events that occur every week. They are named exactly the same but have different details/descriptions depending on who signs up. Different people sign up every week. Manually inputting each event is cumbersome as I have 10 every week and that will expand. Is there some way to duplicate the event with different dates other than manually adding them?

2. Could a feature be added to allow a third option for notification of signup to a alternate email address? I have different leaders for each event, I would like to give them an option to receive emails when people sign up for an event they are in charge of.
