Tacking #t=XmYYs to the end of a YouTube link will direct it to start from X:YY into the video, but can I do something similar to have the annotations off when using the link?

More generally, what arguments can I pass the YouTube player after a hash (#)?

For your second question, check out this link.

iv_load_policy=3 also works on embedded links. For example:
