I have a suggestion for the first problem: you can try QuickFixCmdPost.
I was trying to do a similar thing: to filter quick fix list when user issues
:cgetfile. I came up with a patch, which adds an autocommand-event, well there
is one for that: QuickFixCmdPre (and QuickFixCmdPost) (it was not handling
:cgetfile), but it does the job for :grep (which you mentioned). If you are
interested I can send you the patch.
