$ scp
usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
[-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
[[user@]host1:]file1 [...] [[user@]host2:]file2

use what works; use what you know

i prefer sftp because I am more familiar with ftp than i am with rcp
(which scp is based on)
Yes. Simply do:

$ ssh remote ls /home/andrew/path/to/file
$ scp -r dir2 remote:/home/andrew/path/to/file
