The default behavior of the Move tool is configurable under Edit > 
Preferences... (Tool Options section, I believe).  I personally prefer the 
default behavior to be click-to-pick, but this looks like one of those cases 
where only moving the current (active) layer is a preferable default behavior.

You can't, but that usually is not needed -
what you are probbly missing is that by holding "shift" + click when
using the move tool, you will always move the current active layer,
not the layer with the first non-transparent pixel under the pointer.
(which is usually the situation when you'd be moving a layer you don't
want too)
