laminate flooring on stairs

I recently bought a house and have since decided to rip up the existing carpet and replace it with laminate flooring. I have a couple of questions. Firstly, is the direction in which the flooring is put down matter (parallel or perpendicualr to joists/patio door). Secondly, I was planning on removing the carpet that is on the stairs and also replacing that with laminate. Is there some kind of half round capping for the stair edge, like for real hardwood floors, available for laminate floors?

The direction generally chosen for laminate flooring is to have the plank "ends" or narrow side face the primary light source in the room where the planks will be installed. There is "stair nose" molding and it's available in several materials.
