In irssi, I want all highlights and all URLs to be catched into two separate windows. I.e., when another user highlights me, that message will also appear in a new/other window together with a notification about which channel this message was sent in.

Are there any irssi scripts or anything that will fix this for me?

I don't know about URLs, but the script does exactly as you describe for highlights and private messages. Any messages containing highlights or private messages sent to you are duplicated into a window named "hilight". Simply show and sticky this window to make it always visible:
/window new
/window name hilight
/window goto 1
/window show hilight
/window stick on
