The first part is easily done with

In[1]:=
THForm[expr_] = TraditionalForm@HoldForm@expr;
SetAttributes[THForm, HoldFirst];

In[3]:=
2 + 2 == 4 // THForm
Out[3]//TraditionalForm=
\!\(\*FormBox[
TagBox[\(2 + 2 == 4\),
HoldForm], TraditionalForm]\)
In[4]:=
Integrate[x, {x, 2, 3}] // THForm

Out[4]//TraditionalForm=
\!\(\*FormBox[
TagBox[\(\[Integral]\_2\%3 x \[DifferentialD]x\),
HoldForm], TraditionalForm]\)
