Well, one of the big new features is the ID3 tag writer! It can do just what you are looking for. (You need to use the "format parts" to do that.)

The other thing can be done using a script (also a new feature), so I wrote one quickly that I think will do the job for you. Put it in the script folder, typically "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\RL Vision\Flash Renamer\Script"
