How can I set scale of my view to work with small scale work?

Beginner here.  Two questions:

 

1.)  I am working in very small numbers, mils primarily.  How do I set the scale of solidworks?  Currently I have to zoom far in to see the work, and the dimensioning is tough.

 

2.)  when you create a new plane, how do you then change you view to look directly down on it?  I have this plane that is tilted at an angle, and I would like to just view from essentially a top view.

 

Thanks in advance
