A planer will not straighten a twisted piece of stock. That is unless you mean a hand plane. The proper power tool to flatten a board is a jointer. Then run it through a planer to get two parallel faces of the proper thickness.

Probably nothing. Quarter sawn is the best answer and works very well. It was made by God and mother nature does what she wants. Man continues to challenge mother nature and eventually always looses.
