is there a way I can see which services are currently running on the mac and enable-disable them?

If I understand what you are asking for, you can do all this from the terminal window.
Terminal is located in applications/utilities
in the terminal window type (ignore the "") either
to see a general list of all process running on your system
to see a list of all process running by their CPU usage
BTW: when viewing processes via top, you can type the letter q to stop top and return to the command line
After you have done this, you can stop a process by issuing the kill command. Although, I would advise that you learn more about Unix before messing around with Kill
ProcessViewer in the utils folder
select one and use kill from the menu
be carefull what you kill
Separate names with a comma.
