Hello ISS,
You can do the first 2 items in your list by adding a new Product field (Tools > Define Fields), then adding that field as a column under the Products tab. For the third item, you would probably need an add-on product, like this one:

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
