That is also not difficult:

RewriteRule ^wp-login.php$ /my/login/url [QSA,PT,L]

As far as "pushing" users and making sure two different databases are in sync, it's _much_ easier 
just to force one of the applications to use the others user database.

In this case, just have the two share a wp-style users table, the same way you can with multiple 
installs. That is, by defining the CUSTOM_USER_TABLE CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE constants.
