If I want to scroll to a particular paragraph in Google Docs, or a particular cell in Google spreadsheets, is there a way to do that via Google Apps script?

For Google Doc Spreadsheet, you just need to set the active selection, the scroll is then done directly:

var file = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
var sheet = file.getActiveSheet();
var row = LineToScrollTo;
