You have to get the add-on package "experimental data analyst" to do it automatically. If you wanted to do some programming with graphics primitives, the language is certainly capable of putting vertical bars of varying lengths on a graph, but it will require some programming. Annotations-Yes, though there is no automated feature to do it. You will have to specify the coordinates of the text and specify a graphics primitive for the arrow.
