Mayby the link your after. Fair enough, seems you understand about crosswind landing. As for the kick out after touchdown, i persume its just the airplane rotating on the main wheels due to the rudder action, definately don't think the wheels face a different way to the aircraft.
Heres what wiki says about "kicking out" after touchdown.
This is similar to the De-Crab technique. The principal difference is the aircraft touches down whilst still crabbing. The position on the runway is corrected after touch down. This applies significant slip angle to the tyres, and increases the lateral loads on the undercarriage, so this technique is bounded by speed restrictions and is not generally recommended.
