Diverting Water Away From House

A portion of the driveway slopes toward a narrow grass strip that abuts the house. Is there some sort of edging that can be inserted in the grass where the grass meets the driveway to channel the water away? If so, is it necessary to caulk the bottom?

Nothing like that will work for long.
Time to call the mud jackers. They can re-align the drive.

You don't give enough info here. Is this a sudden problem? Is the water gettign into your basement or foundation?
One option, short of jacking up the basement would be to dig up a the grassy area and lay some perf. drain tile along the area, sloped to drain to the street or other area away from the house. Or, if the grassy area is wide enough to support it, add additional fill dirt to grade the area the best way to get it to flow away from the house.
