partial answer: for the first and second part, i have no answer. but for a boot message of your own, just write the message to a file, e.g. /etc/lilo.msg, add a line like
message = /etc/lilo.msg
in /etc/lilo.conf in the global section, start lilo and there you go...
btw, man page is erroneus, it says a ctrl-l (0xff) in the ascii text clears the screen, but ctrl-l is 0x0c. So add ascii(0x0c) at top of your text and the screen is cleared.

I'm not shure if TAB can completely disabled, but you can use:

      delay=0
      timeout=0
      # prompt

in /etc/lilo.conf. I've seen a discription about the behavior of
the 3 keywords and any possible combinations, but don't remember
where, probably in howto/lilo.gz or so.
