about 30 psi for track front and back...I ride 38 psi for the street...both of these psi's are warm not cold...it really has much to do with what you want to feel when you are riding...the more pressure you have the less resistance you will have, but remember less resistance means less rubber on the ground when going at higher rates of speed and the tire gets tall...

depends on tire brand and model of tire as well.

for the street, regardless of what brand tire, i always stuck with 35 front and rear

for the track, well, drop it about 3-5 lbs. but if you are riding on DOT race tires....then that changes everything.

Different for both.

A little more info would come in handy such as what model of bike, what brand / model of tires and how aggressive you ride on the street and the track.

A good rule of thumb for most sportbikes is 36 psi. front and 34 psi. rear for the street.
Raising the rear to 36 or even 38 will help increase it's life at the expense of a bit of ultimate traction.

Track use pressures vary, but for most street tires 31 front and 29 rear is a good starting point.

I can offer more detailed advice if you give me some more info.
