If you have the cupboards I'm thinking of (like those big spring-back type hinges in kitchen cupboards) then one pair of screws move up and down and another pair of screws move side to side. It's easy - have a go!

Depends on what style of hinge. Some have a spring that can be adjusted, some have to be installed so that the door wants to fall into the cupboard, some are side-specific so that they close. Best bet would be to take a careful look and maybe a picture of what you have and go to a good hardware store (big box stores tend to hire cheap instead of informed) and ask there.
