Linking tasks

I have a very basic question
I have a project which has sub projects indented. I would like to link tasks within a certain sub project to another task in another sub project .
Example :filling then sealing then packaging.
Filling - 8-10am
sealing  10-12pm
packaging 12-16pm

Now if i were to reduce or increase the duration of packaging , would it automatically adjust the times of sealing and filling by 2 hrs respectively? I know it works forward - ie - if i move filling to noon(12pm-2pm ) , packaging wouldnt start until 4pm. can it work backwards if i change packagings time?

RE: Linking tasks

Not sure I understand your question, but I think the answer is no.  There is no way for Project to know that you can move earlier.  The assumption is that you scheduled the first task as early as possible already, so there's no slack time before your first task.
