Here's a response to your second question, from Tom Pullum:

mvdcmp is just one example of an estimation command that does not allow svyset. There are also some commands that allow svyset now, but not in earlier versions of Stata. When this happens, your only option is to make as many of the adjustments for weights, clustering, and stratification as possible. Sometimes, if svyset is not accepted, you can still include [pweight=v005] before the comma and cluster(v001) as an option after the comma. The adjustment for stratification is the only one of the three adjustments that can only be done with svyset and svy. If the estimation command does not accept these adjustments, all you can do is to put a comment in your paper or report saying which adjustments were not possible.
