If you need to pass few parameters only to the server , try response.Redirect

You can't serialize objects over a network during a forward. You'd need a special mechanism you will have to write yourself to handle it, and send all the data before you do the forward, then in the receiving servlet read in that information based on whatever (maybe use a fixed name, but that's obviously risky as you can't handle more than one request that way).
No, it is not going to be pretty. Better just create a new URL and do a POST request to the other machine making sure all relevant data from the session and request are turned into HTML parameters (meaning essentially plain text in the HTTP headers).
