could we programmatically set the printer settings to optimal settings (E.g. 11X17, Landscape mode, fit in one page etc.)?

No - to do this effectively, you'd need to know the capabilities of a printer and that would be a security issue for most users. The alternative would be near impossible as each location would have it's own paper size standards.
Instead, you need to design a page that can be easily printed - or render your page to a PDF document and send that to the user.
Another alternative might be to incorporate Silverlight. This does have API for printing.
