you have to look into jtag manual for that.
possibly you have to  load uboot on the board.
connecting one end of jtag to board through a network cable and one end with
your machine
and after loading uboot, you have to use tftpboot or something
similar(depending on the board documents)
you may have to use uwrite or fiswrite to write uImage to board
you have to be careful with address and all, else you may end up corrupting
the board memory.

For ep boards, there are many document online on ep's site.
i am not sure about your board. manual and board's mailing list is your best

b)      How can I copy my program from flash to RAM and run the same from
