    You can restore then tell iTunes which apps you want to load. Once done, you can use iTunes to move them all into folders because that would be easier. I don't think you're going to restore and see things wind up in folders but I could be wrong.

    Yes, if you back up your phone, wipe it, and then restore from that backup, it should be essentially the same as when you backed it up.
