1) how to draw the Presentation, Business logic and persistence etc. tier boxes in the component diagram or deployment diagram?

2) how to draw the database symbol in the deployment diagram

For your first question. Go to Annotation in Toolbox and select Rectangle from it. Click on the diagram and the tool will create a small rectangle. Drag it over the components you want to be in that tier.
Now, right click on the rectangle in the diagram and go to Format--> Alignment -->Send to back.It will put the rectangle in the background and all the components in foreground.
