Configuring custom .rdp shortcuts for Server 2012 Remote Desktop

The Changes

Windows Server 2012 has changed much in the Remote Desktop (RDS) area; most of which is great, some areas require re-learning.  I'd like to briefly outline two changes that aren't as well documented regarding connecting to the new environment: connecting to an RDS server farm using a connection broker and collection name, and creating a custom .rdp file that can be deployed if the web access server isn't desired.
