Question Wire up a Occupancy Switch, Outlet and ceiling light in a 3-way circuit

Hi Folks,

I have a small laundry room with two 3-way light switches that control one ceiling light. There are no outlets in the room. I would like to replace both switches:

Replace "master" switch with a normal 120v power outlet I plan to use:
Legrand Adorne Tamper-Resistant Outlet White ARTR152W8

Replace "Salve" switch with:
Pass & Seymour RW3U600 Multi-Way Occupancy Switch

I have posted photos of the wires coming out of the switches here:
Electric - stellabotte | SmugMug

I need help with 3 things:
1) What wire goes where a wiring diagram
2) How do I test the wires so I know what wire is what. I know that what the common wire in Switch is ..
3) One side bar question, can any 3-way switch work with any other 3-way switch on the same circuit ?


Thanks
-Fred

I can't tell by the pictures if you have a neutral at either switch. A neutral wire will be a white wire not connected to the switch.
