Both of these things have been covered before if you look through/search the Easytrieve topics here.
The second part (as CA provide some code for the first part, I believe you'll discover, look for a posting by Jose) is more tricky for you. The easiest way is to write a Cobol file exit for a "dummy" PRINTER FILE. Otherwise, go without it edited (why does it need to be edited?) or do the editing "manually" with some code.
