you can define the behavior in the preferences (for future documents)
and in the document settings (for the active document).
you can have the image in the frame automatically follow the size of
the frame or manually change it through the properties palette.
but, indeed, scribus does not yet have handles for resizing the image
in the frame.
it will come at some time... probably.

when you copy paste an item from a page to another one, it will be
pasted at the same place where it was in the source page...

but you can also define guides in the master page (edit > master pages).
