Set symbols and labels the same in different data frames

I know some python, and less arcpy. What I want to do is to loop through the features in the first data frame of two or more, get the symbology and label properties of each feature, then set the same features in all other data frames to the same property. This would be a kind of cleanup tool so I don't have to do it manually if I make changes.
Any ideas on where to start? I'm not sure how to get the features/properties from just the first data frame. The help files seem to deal with .lyr files, while I'm using shapefiles and feature classes in a gdb.
Maybe there's already a tool for this, but I'd like to do this as a learning exercise anyway. Thanks.
