Hi,
for row numbers add a template column as the first column of the grid. As each row is rendered, the code behind the OnItemCreate event will update the text of this column based on the row index from the dataset. Each row of the dataset has an index property that can be used to compute the row number:

Private Sub DataGrid1_ItemCreated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs) Handles DataGrid1.ItemCreated
        If e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item Or e.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.AlternatingItem Then
            e.Item.Cells(0).Text = (e.Item.DataSetIndex + 1).ToString()
        End If

    End Sub

Regards,
venki

adding to tovvenki's post:

then check the name against your auth cookie and add <b> & </b> tags to the text of the name cell.  In your sample above, Name is the second column so I will assume the index of the column is 1.

If {authCookie value} = e.Item.Cells(1).Text Then
     e.Item.Cells(1).Text = "<b>" & e.Item.Cells(1).Text & "</b>"
End If
