1) Leopard gave us such a better Finder it isn't even funny. Have you ever tried LaunchBar or QuickSilver ?

3. Download the free application TinkerTool and there is a check box to stop that.
4. I'm sorry but I use the Mac burning program called Toast and haven't used the built in burning in a long time (except iTunes CD burning).
5. I use the view call Column view. In an open Finder window top click on the box with three squares together to get Column view. Is this good enough?
Plus have ever used the Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) before? You can find tons of unix OS X hints at MacOSXHints.com. they have tons of hints starting from the birth of OS X you might find interesting. They have a search function to find all those hints too.
Lastly never believe the hype that a Mac never needs maintenance. Down either Yasu or Onyx and run the cleaning routines about every 4 weeks. Just remember to reboot you Mac twice after the cleaning routines are done to rebuild the startup/shutdown cache. This should keep you Mac humming along.
