Registration Emails & Sending Custom Data to Paypal

Two questions:

1) Is there a way to configure EE to send an email to the event contact person immediately after an attendee registers (but before they pay via paypal, etc) with their registration information, but ONLY send the attendee a confirmation email AFTER they paid?

I have a client who doesn’t want attendees to think their registration is complete until they’ve paid (so doesn’t want them to get ANY email until they pay), but they DO want an email sent to their event manager as soon as an attendee registers, regardless of whether they’ve paid or not. The configuration seems to allow for either sending an email to both the event manager and attendee before or after they pay, but not separating the two options.

2) The same client would also like one of the data fields on the registration form to be passed among the information sent to Paypal (company/school name), so that when they get the email from Paypal they can match it up based on that field (as opposed to the Paypal transaction id). Is this possible?

With question number one, the settings can only be configured to send the confirmations before or after payment, and these settings affect both. In order to extend this to have more granular control over when each confirmation gets sent, the email functions would have to be refactored.
With question number two, that should be possible by modifying the PayPal gateway functions to include the custom field.
We generally do not offer customization support in the forums where it involves modifying core functions or payment gateways. I can suggest requesting a customization quote here:
