This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In my experience, no. You'll need to move over your saved games manually, and how that's done changes from one game to another.

Also, I believe Steam is supposed to keep track of achievements, but it's been hit or miss for me. I kept 2 (out of about 6 or 7) achievements for Portal, but kept all of them for Braid.

...except for games that are Steam Cloud enabled, then save and configuration files should be mirrored between computers. – badp Aug 8 '11 at 6:52
