Home Page Component - Redirect?

Hey all,
There are two functions I am attempting to perform, the first of which is the desired and the second of which is the "I'll settle for it" option.

Is it possible to:

(1) Create a custom home page component (sidebar) of some sort that invokes and posts data to a VF page in the MAIN BODY of the screen (i.e. it doesn't render it in the sidebar itself.)?

(2) Create a custom home page component (sidebar) that simply causes the ENTIRE PAGE to refresh (not just the component in the sidebar)?

Here is the code for an example of #2:
<apex:page standardController="User" extensions="Five9ScreenPop">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function redirect(){        
            return false;
    <apex:form id="searchForm">
        <center><apex:commandButton value="Search Contacts & Accounts" action="redirect();"/></center>
When this button is clicked the small little section of the home page component in the sidebar is what is redirected, not the entire page.

How can I accomplish this?
