Answers :

See "Postcard Mode" on page 32 of the Advanced Guide. If you need them, you may download the manuals from here.

In all modes the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
