I totally agree with  smadeira; no one is going to do all of that for you.

Even a paid out of the box software can't do all of that without some customizations from you.

Here is the link I posted for someone yesterday, I think it  was:

This doesn't include wishlist and some of othe stuff on your list.

However, I do have those.

Get started with what you have been provided with so far.

Then come back and ask more questions and we will glad to provide more assistance.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could download something for free that would do EVERYTHING you needed?  Because ecommerce projects are always complicated, you will rarely find everything you want in one solution.  Instead of tryint to find pre-built software that will do everything you want, look for software that can be quickly and easily modified to do everything you want.  Only then will you get EXACTLY what you want.

When making your selection, check to see how well the software is documented and how accessible the source code is.  Open source software is often easier to modify than paid software.
