Re-creating 808/909 functions in Ableton?

So, since I've never owned/messed with either of these, it's difficult to know exactly what I'm asking for.

One thing I'd like to re-create is the triggering functions. How did people use the 808 to trigger bass and pads? Were there certain sounds (cowbell/click) that were the triggers?

What about shuffle?

Are there any velocity tricks? I saw a demo where a guy was turning some knob to control the velocity of the hi-hats. It's tedious to draw them in, and I'd sometimes like to do it by hand or with lfo somehow.
