For the first does MaxJobs not do that?  For the second you can set 
MaxJobsPerUser.  That's what we do here for our test partition, we set a 
limit of 5 jobs per user running at any given time.

You can then tie the QoS to a specific partition using the QoS option in 
the partition config in slurm.conf
