setting highlight color and font size

I'm running Mathematica 9.01 under Mountain Lion X.8.3, and have 3 questions to
which I haven't been able to find answers:

* When some text, or a cell is selected the highlight background color
is now a light blue; where do I change that default? I don't recog-
nize anything in Option Inspector that does that.

* The Input command produces a box into which one can type something;
I would like to change the default font and size of what is typed
to something more easily readable. Where is that done?

* In the Input box, if I type in some word, Mathematica does not consider
that to be either a string or numeric (StringQ and NumericQ both
produce 'False'). So what is it, and how does one learn an object's
type other than by testing?

Thanks for the help.
