The Catholic church only recognizes one baptism, therefore, if you were baptized protestant, you do not get baptized again if you convert to Catholicism. You will, however, have to go through classes before being able to receive your first communion. If you do this as an adult, you attend RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) and you will receive your communion and confirmation in the same mass.

Can a Greek orthodox confirm a child in a catholic church?

No. In order to be able to partake of the Holy Sacrament of Communion, you must be baptized and christmated(confirmed) in the Church in which you plan to receive the first communion. However, you are unable to be baptized in both churches, as the church in which the child has been baptized for the second baptism, becomes the Church in which they stand in and can only stay in that church, unless they convert to the other church, and lost the "right" to take communion in the church they converted form.

How can a child of a Lutheran and Catholic parent be baptised to make both parents happy?

A person can only be baptized once so baptizing in both churches would be redundant. Generally, when a non-Catholic marries a Catholic they are required to affirm that any children must be raised as Catholics before the Church will allow them to marry. Therefore, if they were married in a Catholic church the children should be baptized in a Catholic church. If the parents were not married in a Catholic church, then they have another problem. They need to regularize their marriage to be in full communion with the Catholic Church. They must arrange to have their marriage blessed by the Catholic Church.
