Error Bars-Yes,but.  You have to get the add-on package "experimental
data analyst" to do it automatically.  If you wanted to do some
programming with graphics primitives, the language is certainly capable
of putting vertical bars of varying lengths on a graph, but it will
require some programming.

Annotations-Yes, though there is no automated feature to do it.  You
will have to specify the coordinates of the text and specify a graphics
primitive for the arrow.
