Adding the view count is quite easy, in your advanced theme just put a call to $this->view_count($post) where you like. I do it in the voting() function, in a conditional like this:
if ( $this->template == 'question' )
And for the tags, again you can do that in a theme. Override post_tag_item:
function post_tag_item($tag, $class)
$this->output('<LI CLASS="'.$class.'-tag-item tag-'.$tag.'">'.$tag.'</LI>');
Then target classes like ".tag-plugins". Hope that helps!
