I don't think you need/can create a global setting for the File. On mac for publishing I usually create a set for each machine so I don't need to redefine the path I just pick the one that applies to the machine. For the libraries I think you are out luck.
Have you tried setting up a Teamwork share?
It would solve your library problem and with specific publishers you can fix the other.
