If you are referring to the forum PMs, do you mean saving your sent messages or viewing a "conversation" in a thread-like manner? If the former, you can set an option in your user settings to saving outgoing PMs by default so you can refer to them later. If the latter, I'm not sure the forum supports that functionality by default; one possible workaround is to quote the previous message to which you are replying so that you can more visibly maintain context in your response.

You can send a PM to multiple recipients, just add more people in the "To" box. As far as "catching someone up" on an ongoing conversation you'd have to quote previous messages and include them in the PM to provide any past content.

ok one more thing quickly. what does the reply to all button do? does it reply to everyone in the conversation if theres more than two people, or does it reply to every post in the conversation?

Reply to All creates a message which populates the "To" field of the new message with everyone listed after "Sent to:" in the old message (i.e. the one in which you click the "Reply to All" link) in addition to the sender (excluding yourself, of course). Normally, clicking just the "Reply" link would send the response to only the person from whom you received the message to which you are replying.
