How to close current instance Safari?  And...

I have many instances open but want only to close the current one. What hotkeys or other commands are available to close that?

And when tabling back to Safari, I want the last instance used to be the selection. I am getting frustrated since Lion seems to want to scroll through each one for me. But I want the one I last interacted with to be the selected one when I tab up to the Safari icon.

Is this possible?

Thanks.

For the first part, use the keyboard shortcut Command+w, if there's only one tab open it will close the window. To close a window with more than one tab open use Command+Shift+w.

I don't think your second need is catered for.
