See 2nd answer...

The 'cvs tag' command operates on your local sandbox.  If the files
that you want tagged are already in the repository, then you want to
use the 'cvs rtag' command which operates directly on the repository.
See the manual for more details.

There is nothing preventing you from 'cvs rtag'ing three or more
directories in the same command.  That would be the best way to answer
#1 above, although there's nothing stopping you from rtag'ing each
directory separately (except the increased possibility that someone
will commit files in one directory while you're tagging another).
