Check out the add-on package Legend. 2. Make a function which takes as input the plot dimensions. The function then makes the plot and calls the Text graphics primitive using the plot coordinates you input. 3. Mathematica is a programming language, not a program. It is grossly unfair and counterproductive to compare mathematica to a special purpose graphing program like gnuplot or Axum etc. Instead of looking for built-in ways to do something, write a little program yourself.
