URL when using visual force page

Can we control the URL when using a visual force page? Disclaimer, don't know much about visual force myself. I'd settle for a yes or no, but if it's easy change maybe you can outline how it would be done.

For example, we have a visual force page for our opportunities. The first thing it's doing that I don't like, is its using the 18 character ID instead of the 15. Can we change it to use the 15 character ID? The second thing it's doing that I don't like, is its appending this thing at the end "?nooveride=1". Can we get rid of that? I guess what I'm saying is I want the URL to look exactly like it does for opportunities without visual force.
Current URL with visual force page:

If I erase the last 3 characters of the ID and everything after it, the link still takes me to the opportunity, so I guess those things aren't really necessary? Then it's just a matter of is there a way to remove them?

How to show the standard page for an overriden page?

If you have overriden a standard action with a Visualforce page, but you want to view the standard page you can write the URL using the [nooverride=1] parameter like this:

Action Overriden                                      Sample URL to be used
New Record                                             https://cs0.salesforce.com/001/e?nooverride=1
Edit Record                                              https://cs0.salesforce.com/001R000000AWF6W/e?nooverride=1
Record Tab                                               https://cs0.salesforce.com/001/0?nooverride=1

If you are a Visualforce page where you need to have the original page show, you can use the URLFOR() function.
