Dr. Siegman,

One method for handling two of the plotting problems you posted is to use
Rectangles within a larger area. I'm thinking of Rectangles with the third
graphics argument. You can lay out your rectangles however you wish, and
then use Text statements to put labels above them, below them, or wherever
you wish. I do this all the time. You can get really nice looking graphics.

One thing to watch out for is to roughly match the aspect ratio of the
rectangles to the aspect ratios of the plots, making allowances for the
space taken by frame labels and tick values.
