Im trying to figure out how to fit a .png to a plane and have the transparency work on the .png and the plane be invisible. Not having any luck...

Create a material and load your png into the alpha channel. Then place the material on the plane.

Excellent, thanks! Now the only issue I have is that it is casting a shadow fine on the background but it should also be reflecting. I have the texture set on both sides and I turned up the reflectivity on the background to make sure it wasn't showing. The background is reflecting all of the other elements just fine.

My guess is that you don't have any light shining on the back side of the PNG plane, so the background is just reflecting darkness.
