Yes, the command is called clone hirarchy.

you can find the "clone hierarchy"-plugin in the generics-pulldown. It ships with lw.
If you don't find it, this should do the trick:

FamilyCloneGN (v.2.0)
clones and formates multiple heirarchies in L6 and up.

Yes. There is an LScript that comes with LightWave called "Mirror Item" that does just that.

yes, but this doesn't seem to work with a hierarchy, or am I doing something wrong?
