    If you plant the raspberries in a straight line, that is a good start. The second year the roots will run a bit. Some varieties are worse than others for this. You can sever canes that are growing in the wrong place, leaving only the new canes in the line you want.  Have a strong post at each end of the line, and attach wires between the two to tie the canes to.

    Yes, you can resite the ones that grow out of the straight line. After a year or two you may have so many that you just throw away any strays.

    I have had one run under a slabbed path and come up in a crack on the boundary fence. I leave it because it has the tastiest berries, and it crops twice, early in June on last years wood, and from September on new years wood.
