Text to right of picture is fairly easy:
1.  Insert picture at proper point.
2.  Right click  on it and choose Picture.  This pops-up a nine-tab 
box.  The 'Type' and 'Wrap' tabs are probably of most use.  On the Type 
tab, Size can be adjusted by checking the Keep Ratio box and then 
changing either Width or Height.  Use Anchor to control picture 
position.  To_paragraph or To_character is probably best.
On the Wrap tab, the Optimal Setting should provide what you said you 
want.  Spacing allows you to keep a little white-space between the 
picture edges and the text.

Sorry, I can't help with the column problem.
