In brief: Individual Program
Before engaging in exercises for back pain a full evaluation by physical therapy is in order. This will take into account your natural posture and your particular occupation and activities.
A supervised exercise program should follow. Be cautious o the popular video exercises like wii.

In brief: Depends
First, scoliosis is not a typical cause for back pain unless it involves the lower back or if it a larger curve.
You can try core stabilization exercises like pilates & yoga along with other flexibility routines & cariovascular conditioning as well as proper weight & avoidance of smoking. Good sleep habits on a good mattress helps & maintaining good bone density. If pain persists, get checked.
