Hi, I can help you with your first question is a) enter the expression (2+2 == 4 or Integrate[x,{x,2,3}] ) b) >>before evaluation<<use "Cell|Convert To| TraditionalForm" or the short key equivalent ... then you'll have the traditional input form. Notice that "Cell|Display As| TraditionalForm" is almost useless (because it doesn't use the Kernel, it just takes your input and wraps it in >>FormBox["input expression", TraditionalForm] << effectively giving you only italic letters. No transformations are done (e.g.Integrate doesn't get replaced with the integrate letter form etc.).
