    Either use the <!-- more --> tag in your post editor or change your index.php (or home.php) file to use excerpts. I believe the call you want to use is the_excerpt() instead of the_content() but don't quote me on that.

    The categories are highlighted there in WP that work like archive, I think that's just enough!

    I recommend to use <!-- more -->. You can put this label anywhere you want. Be aware that by using this label, your post in RSS feed will be presented like excerpt, also. For this not to happen, you can use Full text feed plugin.

    Dan's suggestion to use the_excerpt will kill these two birds with one stone. It will strip out the html unless you specify your own in the box on the write screen.

    I forgot the "2" point. You can add an ad directly in the single.php file. The ad will display only in your posts.
