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.).
