For monitoring, there's several options, You can setup an NTop server and export flow data from the router to it. (http://www.ntop.org)
Blocking, you'll have to create an ACL and block what you don't want.  For your example, stopping torrents would be difficult as it can run over any port.  Your best bet is to get a firewall that can do deep packet inspection, like an ASA.  Then you can do something like this:

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

If your CPU can handle it and your IOS supports it, you can view NBAR traffic and/or completely block it:

Hello

If your router is connected using an standard network cable you can use an switch and the port mirroring facility to copy the output to another machine. That will allow you to use wireshark or another application to analyse the trafic.

I have not done it before with NBAR, but I found an article that desribes what you're trying to do on this platform.  Let me know how this works for you:

I'll have to echo what they say at the begining, if they enable encryption on their torrent client, all bets are off.  Then you'll really need something that does deep packet inspection, like an ASA or similar firewall device.
