Stage Recovery & Flight Manager for Reusable Stages (FMRS) are the main two I'm aware of, but I haven't used either.  If I understand correctly, Stage Recovery just recovers funds, science & crew from any dropped stage that has sufficient parachutes and/or sufficient fuel for a powered stage.  FMRS jumps you back & forth in time to manually recover the dropped stages, then jump back to the core ship to continue the mission.

Yup, Stage recovery is pretty much fire and forget, you drop the boosters, and when they get a certain distance away, they are recovered.    Some boosters will require a probe core to be recovered, depending on the flight parameters (Too fast, too high, requires powered descent, etc).  One nice side effect of SR, you can deorbit probes back onto Kerbin without having to actually fly the reentry and landing.   Just drop your Pe to below 0km, and switch back to whatever craft you want, and SR will handle the rest. 

There is no controlling the booster to the ground, so it may not be what you are looking for.

If you want to control them both at the same time, you might be out of luck.   There are autopilot mods that will allow you to fly a formation of planes together, but I don't think they'd work so well for falling boosters.
