1: Yes, but updatedb takes minutes to run, you can put it in one of Fedora's startup files in /etc/rc.d, I am not sure of the exact structure of Fedora because every distro varies a little.
2: What do you mean "to do this for all users"? Only root needs to be able to run updatedb if done at boot, otherwise you can change the permissions for 'updatedb' to allow users to search.
3: updatedb --prunepaths='/directories /you /want /to /exclude'
