Help with forms in Acrobat 9

Using XP and Acrobat 9 Standard: I have three questions about working with forms that I don't find answered anywhere. 1. Can I edit the info in the Document Message Bar? If so how? 2. Can I join form fields? I want to combine a short text field on on

Using XP and Acrobat 9 Standard:
I have three questions about working with forms that I don't find answered anywhere.
1. Can I edit the info in the Document Message Bar? If so how?
2. Can I join form fields? I want to combine a short text field on one line with a longer text field on the next line so that the info will wrap to the 2nd line. For instance, there is a short question with the rest that line being blank. Then the next line is across the whole page. I want the top line to continue onto the 2nd line. I understand checking the multi-line option in preferences for a form field that is deep enough to hold several lines, but I want that short line to be included also.
One of my problems may be that I need to have the form available with hard lines for hand completion and also available for those who want to complete it online.
3. Once I make a form that can be completed online, do I have to 'distribute' it? I just want to upload it to a website so members can download, complete and email as an attachment. Do I have to do anything special to accomplish this?
Thanks for your help.

Thanks Chris - That did EXACTLY what I wanted it to do.
I was able to create a button that prompts the user to save the form, then it hides the price fields, then it flattens, then it e-mails the form. The order was important since I wanted the salesperson to be able to save the "not-flattened" form.
