Every single one of those topics has been discussed in the last year on this forum, so you have come to a good place to find this information. Do a search, using the topics you have listed, and you should find most of them pretty quickly. Everything you have mentioned is either a technique, or saved as a template of some sort. Create a template by setting up a part/assembly/drawing/table as you want it to look, then choose "Save As..." and select template. You will also need to "Save As.." Drawing formats, and right click on your BOM tables, and choose "Save as template".
Drawing Templates (.drwdot)
Drawing Formats (.slddrt)
BOM Table Favorites (.sldbomtbt)
If you use any other specialty things, there are other sorts of templates that can be saved as well. Do a search for each of your topics, and then let us know if there was something specific you couldn't find. To find techniques for automatically finding BOMs, do a search for "part number", you will have to wade through a bit, but the are there. Look for the topics with stars.
Alternatively buy Matt Lombards SolidWorks Bible book as a good source of info.
Off topic a bit but one gripe I have in setting defaults for drawings is changing the default font. Why can't we just have a global "make default font" preference rather than having to open each dialogue for each type of text/note usage. Its a real PIA!
I hate Century Gothic!
THANKS FOR THE GUIDANCE GUYS. IT WAS VERY HELPFUL!
