1) If you mean adobe flash player visit adobe site and install it
2) Yes openoffice is in add/remove utility use the search option

What have you tried? Just download the latest flash-plugin from the adobe website. I suggest to download the RPM and install it using
Code:
rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-10.0.12.36-release.i386.rpm
I don't remember if the RPM creates it automatically, but eventually you have to link the flash shared object within /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
then restart Firefox and the trick is done.

OpenOffice should be installed by default. You can check by issuing
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -i ^openoffice
this will show all the installed openoffice packages (if any). Moreover if the "Add/Remove software" (PackageKit is the actual application name) does not work for some reason, you can always search and install packages using yum from the command line. Then you can investigate on the "Add/Remove Software" tool's problem.
