    For the weeping branches, you can prune them back and they will start to grow new stems from the old, which will make the plant more bushy and upright.

    In terms of the size and repotting, it sounds like your plants need to be divided. Take the plant out of the pot and with a sharp, clean, large knife, cut the rootball apart into sections you find manageable and then repot them. Just make sure that a stem above has some roots below to sustain it. I know it sounds a bit brutal, but really the plants recover quickly.
