No, the defines replace the default WordPress table names, if they are 
defined. Does not include the prefix with the constant, so the name has 
to be the full custom table name.

If you want to define the user, you can do so by another method. I want 
to say by creating the WordPress cookie or by writing your own User API 
function in a plugin.

Can you explain more by what you mean of 'MySQL view'?
