    Try a cutscene editor like uSequencer or Aperture. They let you make these things visually (rather than through scripts), and you can fast forward and rewind as you edit. Their websites have video tutorials.

    Not that I know of. Two other options are:

    1. (Non-scripting) Create legacy animation clips that control the camera transform and other elements that need to move during the cutscene. Then play these clips. Use the Animation View to do this.

    2. (Scripting) Coordinate the changes (camera movement, particle effects, etc) in script. Coroutines are very helpful for this. The Unity Gems article on coroutines specifically mentions cutscene sequences: http://unitygems.com/coroutines
