andrew: 1. To visually enlarge the canvas without going through the menu, use the crop tool to select the entire image. Release the mouse button. Then, use the grab handles to pull the selection out beyond the borders of the image. Hit your enter/return key and the canvas will be the size of the selection. And btw, you don't really have to grab the handles. You can grab anywhere on the side.
Do you need to use the Shift key to constrain the proportions?

>>5. To move a layer mask to another layer, drag its icon to the new layer. If you want to copy, alt (option) - drag.

I copy layer masks a lot so I'll try this one because what I do is to ctrl-click on the layer mask which loads the selection, highlight the receiving layer and then click on the Add Layer Mask icon at the bottom of the Layers palette (remember, I'm using Photoshop 7 so not sure if that icon still exists) and the layer mask is added to the layer with the selection...
