Re your (a), putting a caption under an inserted picture:
Here's one way. Before or after you insert the image, assign it to a name, say,
pic = . . . ;
For example, from www.wolfram.com, I selected the "spiky" with the '9' on it and pasted it into an Input cell after "pic =" and evaluated the cell.
Next, evaluate a new cell:
Column[{pic, "Mathematica 9 is here"}]
You may use a Style in the 2nd element of that list to change the font. And various options of Column to adjust the appearance.
Actually, there's no need for the separate step of assigning the image to a name; you can directly paste the image into the first position of the list argument of Column.

Of course the cell cannot be evaluated, so I have turn off that option. If there is a way to add the caption, I wonder whether the whole cell  picture + caption  could be centered justified. >
