Simple Question, I'm sure asked a million times (hard to find simple/applicable answers with so many options/setups out there though):

How can I rip an entire DVD onto my computer, menu structure in tact, without losing any quality, so that:

1. I can stream the dvd from my computer to my theater.
2. I can re-burn a copy of the dvd if I wanted to go back to a physical copy.

If I can remove undesirable aspects of the dvd to save space (alternative languages, fbi warnings, previews, etc...) that would be a bonus.

You can rip the DVD as either an iso image that can be mounted in a virtual drive or you can rip it with the original folder structure. VirtualCloneDrive from SlySoft is a free utility that acts as a virtual DVD drive. There are numerous ripping utilities available that can rip in either format, such as AnyDVD, DVDFab Decrypter, and others. There are also utilities that can strip out the unwanted extras and leave just the main movie. There are lots of playback apps that will play from either the virtual drive or from the folders.
