1) To add Password Reset to an FBA site you need to edit the

Visual Studio. You can change the properties of the Login control to
add an option  for a link to a Password Reset page. Check some ASP.NET
2.0 documentation for how to do this.

2) You can't edit an FBA site in SharePoint Designer. However, if
you created the site by extending a regular WebApplication you can edit
that site using SharePoint Designer and the changes will apply to the
FBA site as well. SharePoint Designer doesn't support Forms Based
