How do I ....?

I'm a professional pilot, so no stranger to flight simulators, but I am new to FSX, well, actually, new to PC flight simulators generally, and brand new to this forum. So apologies if I'm asking questions that have already been asked a thousand times, but:

- Are there any tutorials that will guide me in how to make chages to aircraft cockpits, replace guages etc.?
- I've noticed that the FSX scenery shown for our local airports is very generic. How can I make it more realistic?
- Also the navigation aids and runway lenghts at one of our airports are way out of date. Is there a way to ensure that FSX is kept up to date with reality?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

FSX is supported and you can test drive the Demo Version before you buy.
