Sounds like a homework exercise to me: have you read the help file?

eg.
for Q1. Telling where you are
for Q2. 23j 5h puts you on the 5th column of row 23.

Cool - now go find someone to help
Have a look at the zero reply threads. Many of them can be solved with a quick google. You may learn something too.
