    It all comes down to skillful use of automation and compression, while taking care to control sibilance etc. I'm not a big follower of timbaland, so cant say for sure, but there might be some layering going on (recording the same phrase multiple times with a slightly different sound.)

    Everything is mixed around the vocal. Its by far the most important part of the song, and all the instruments are moulded around it. When it comes to tricks to get the vocal stand out, think of the frequency spectrum and what parts of it are important to the vocals. You might see a shelf boost at around7k, a small boost in the low-mids and mids depending on the music around it. All the other tracks will probably have quite a bit of their mids cut away to stop masking between them and the vocal.

    Compression is incredibly important because you want the vocal to sit in its place of glory in the mix. You also dont want to crush the life out of it either, so thats a bit of a balancing act. Compression as well can bring out sibilance and you might have to compensate for that with de essing and such.

    Reverb and effects are also important and have to be chosen for each song.

    There really are no recipies in music, you just have to work at it, learn how your tools work and apply them appropriately to suit the situation.
