The system's SMF Type-30 records will have the information you need, if your Systems Programmers have activated the logging of those events.

SMF is the System Management Facility, which is able to log all activities
on a mainframe, therefore you will have a lot of data (several million records possible) collected on a dayly basis, for controlling or statistical data purposes. your information is in record type-30 as mentioned by superk.

therefore your userid needs no activation,
the facility needs it, you just need the appropriate rights,
on that dataset, which contains that data. --> RACF

your second point, is trickier!
maybe you can identify, which job created, modified or deleted a file,
but it will be impossible to find out if the datasets are used as input
to any program inside any job. if a dataset is used as input to any program, depends completely on the programs logic.
--> DISPostion keyword in job--> i.e. DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE)...
