For 1) It don't make sense to do it using Event receiver. For 2) you can do it via custom event receiver

I recommend you should go for a visual web-part with all these validations. You can use this webpart to enter data in the list\library.

To create event receivers : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg252010(v=office.14).aspx
