Macro help..

Ok, this is my plan, it's 2 questions in one. Well, 2 ideas anyway.

I want a macro that will activate aspect of the hawk, and switch my row of skills to row 1.

I want another macro that will activate Aspect of the Monkey, and switch my skills to row 2.

One more thing, I have a seperate off the topic question. Why do most hunters use 1h axes? im partial to swords, but if axes are better I would like to understand why.
