I have this code:

p0 = {{0, 0, 0}, {2,1,2}, {4,1,2}, {3,3,2}, {
    1,2,1}, {2,1,1}};
p = Transpose[{p0, Append[Rest[p0], First[p0]]}];
c = Table[Hue[Mod[i, 7]/7], {i, Length[p]}];
Graphics3D[Thread[{c, Cylinder[#, 0.07] & /@ p}], Boxed -> True,
  Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}, ViewPoint -> {20, 20, 20},
  AspectRatio -> 1]

I haven't  used Mathematica for 5 years and I have forgotten a lot.

1. How do I get a label on each point? 1,2,3,4,5,6 would be OK.
2. How do I control the size and color, etc. of those labels?
3. When I move the six points (actually I use Manipulate), the size of 
the box changes, making the change in the polygon confusing. How do I 
keep the box from changing?
4. I assume there is no way to drag the points on the display and have 
the coordinates change accordingly. (Maybe it can in 2D displays?)

Thank you for any info.
