I'm not sure what you mean by freeze the shoulder, but you can freeze the feet buy using an IK handle, I think you have to group the IK handle to itself to properly freeze them.
The second skeleton thing is handy, it alows you to have a full bind skeleton, and by duplicating parts of it like the spine for example you can work on a rig for the spine, like a spline IK rig, and when your happy with it, just orient constrain the spine joints of the bind skeleton to their equivelents on your rigged spine skeleton.
this is a bit fierce but very good (http://www.peachpit.com/articles/article.asp?p=102262&seqNum=4)
this is one is much easier. (http://www.rigging101.com/) (this link is a bit mad, go to the free stuff folder and find the spline IK bit.)
Hope this helps!
