For info on dynamic IP naming see this hint.
To ssh into your computer (assuming that you've punched a hole in your Airport firewall as this hint describes) and use VNC you can type the following:

ssh -C -L 5901:localhost:5900 username@hostname

-C (optional) enables SSH compression and can allow better throughput

-L local port forwarding. In this case if you try to access localhost on port 5901, it will be forwarded to port 5900 on the remote computer.

Once you have logged into your computer (and assuming you have a VNC server started. See this hint.) just run a VNC viewer and connect to "localhost:5901"

You can also see the VNC page for doing this here.

I'm trying to run all of my apps through the SSH tunnel port 22. I can run most apps through the tunnel (like TB2, filesharing, etc) and then connecting to localhost but the tunnel doesn't seem to pass UDP 3283 for ARD. Any suggestions?

SSH only handles TCP traffic, not UDP.
