The latest addition to the Mathematica Applications Library,
The Time Series Pack, can do much of what you want. (The second,
thrid and fourth items on your list are definitely implemented.) 
It is just about to start shipping. Look out for an announcement 
including more details of its capabilities in the next few weeks.

It would probably be a good idea to look at what it provides
before you reproduce too much of it yourself.

For information about pricing and availability contact Wolfram 
Research's sales department (info at

I hope this helps.
