not as such. you could look through the code and see whether
you can reuse the available procs for your script.

no. at least not directly. you could record the transformation
matrix and apply it to the grid base vectors manually, but you'd
have to do that manually and it would only work with some file
formats, as several molfile plugins rotate coordinates and
associated data to have the coordinates and the volumetric
data arranged in a way so that periodic display is correct.
