I would reccomend using OpenVPN over PPTP - has higher performance

You can probably create a Iptables rule like

iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -i [name of VPN Tunnel, i.e. tun0] -d [home router ip] -j ALLOW
iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -i [name of VPN Tunnel, i.e. tun0] -d [your home subnet]/24 -j DROP
2. I don't have time to search on the net right now, but most of the ones that you will find that use TUN, and not TAP will work well. Make sure it uses push "redirect-gateway def1" in the guide.
Note: You can also use SSH Tunneling, which would be much less complicated methinks
