ol 2000 customised contact forms used on with ME server

please, please would some plain-speaking non-technical person help me
with my probs?
i have absolutely no development knowledge and am scared to play too much, however I have designed my own very specialised Contact Form which is published in the organisational library and is the default form for a Contact sub-folder called 1:1. 
1. I  would dearlylike to know a way for files/items to be inserted in to any field other than Notes.
2. When inserting the text only of an email into Notes, can I change the date to exclude the time?... and  to be always inserted in a specific font, size and colour (irresspectiveof how it was originally written?
3. Is there any way to datestamp new data as it is inserted in custom fields?
4. When landing on the Notes field, the cursor does not go to the beginning but goes further down the page which is really irritating
5. I have numerous new custom fields in both "User-defined fields in folder" and in "1:1 form".  Because I didn't know what I was doing at first,I have many redundant(empty)ones made in error.  I have tried to delet these on the "All Fields" page of each record but cannot delete those from the 1:1 form at all - the delete button is greyed out.
Thamlk you, in advance, kind person(s)  for helping me!

I am afraid that you are totally out of your element.

1. There is no such thing as a "ME server".
2.. Try posting to an outlook programs forum for help with 
programming/publishing.

Can i use Windows Search to find a number within Excel?

Tab order on form issue
<sigh> This is frustrating me. I'm sure the answer is simple, but I can't find it. Bear with me. I have a form with non-ActiveX fields in Word 2003. FieldA is a drop-down and based on the choice (with an OnExit macro), fields after FieldA become either enabled or disabled. Let's say I have text field FieldA_1A and dropdown FieldA_2A. Depending on my choice in FieldA, one or the other of those two are enabled. Both are disabled to start (you must choose something from FieldA to enable the appropriate field. My problem is that when I tab out, FieldB (which ...
