llarrea is on a distinguished road

I just got myself a new 17" iMac for Christmas. I have never before been a Mac user, but I decided to give it a try as my home PC. There are a few things that are driving me crazy, because I have not been able to figure it out:

1. How can I move my iTunes music collection from my PC (it is currently on an external IOmega 250GB drive formatted in NTFS). Or how can I get iTunes to read the music collection from the external drive keeping all my playcounts, ratings, etc.

2. This one is about the iOmega drive. Recognition of the drive seems random, sometimes it shows in my desktop, but most of the time nothing happens. How can i Solve this problem?

3. I Windows I could select a whole line of text in Word, any editor, or on a text box on any application by hitting SHIFT-END or SHIFT-HOME. This does not work on a Mac, any ideas how to do it.

Thanks for your help!
