You can use the copy command to copy other files on flash: as well to TFTP. However, the config file will be the most useful. For VLANs, I recommend manually entering the data on the new 2960. While you can try copying the vlan.dat from the 2950 to the 2960, there have been some issues in the past with copying vlan.dat across switch types.
You can copy the vlan.dat from the 2950 to a TFTP server with:
copy flash:vlan.dat tftp
However, restoring it to the 2960 may be problematic. If you run into issues restoring the VLAN/VTP data, you will need to manual configure the vlan database on the 2960.
I don't understand the second question. If you're asking how to connect a 2950 to a 2960 with gig links, you just need to connect a fiber cable between the two. Set both ports to be switchports, and the link should come up. If not, then perhaps you have a bad cable or bad GBIC.
