[Novice] Automatic bracketing and Defaults Setup

Hi,

Could any kind soul out there show me if there is a way to have Mathematica 
(v4) set up such that everytime one enters brackets, their corresponding 
(closing) ones automatically appear?

For example, 

Enter:  f = [

Appears: f = [_]
              ^
          cursor is here


 ... Steps later ...


Enter:  f = [[{(Sin[

Appears: f = [[{(Sin[_])}]]
                     ^ 
               cursor is here


Also, I have searched the Math book, google, and wolfram and couldn't find 
any hints on how to have the magnification, the font family and font size set
up as defaults ( I assumed that it is in the init.m file). It would be great
if people can post their own favourite setups and beginners can use them as 
a start. 

Any help would be appreciated.
