for the first one, you can use the sleep command to make your script to sleep and wake up after n seconds. If you do this through an infinite loop, you can make your script run every n second.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

while [ 0 ]; do
        echo "Hello world"
        sleep 2
done
if you save this script in a file and give execute permission to the file, when you run it, it will print hello world every 2 seconds.
