Check out this section of the NX docs:

Workflow to define and use a reusable object

Using object attributes will be the key to getting the automatic pocketing behaviors.  (In particular, "REUSE_SUBTRACT" for a pocket.)

Reusable object attributes

Screws, bolts, etc. in the Reuse Library are normally managed with Part Families and then packaged as a "Knowledge Enabled Component" (a.k.a. Reusable Component).

Knowledge enabled components

Hope that helps!  :-)
