Don't mod the usb cable that comes with 700p. the TX/RX pins is missing.
Get a T5 cable with all the pins and its easier.

The palm can be charged with just data cable, (in osx). under windows I think you need to install palm desktop then the red light turns on. (so you need to install a driver and not just a MTP device...)

its hard to explain why it happens. especially for windows since it does strange things..
You can go find T5 charger, I think they are cheaper than Treo charger (same thing)
in osx/linux, once you plug it in it should charge (RED led lid up)

I don't know how to help you other than that. Since I don't use Windows as my main os

You can assign the categatory in the Contacts. you can assign ringtone there also. I forgot exactly how.

Or you can try lightwav, and another app (lite one) by toysoft too.

A warning, do NOT enable the volume boost for your EARPIECE, eventually your eyepiece will be damaged because of it. I learn the hard way, now I can't use the phone with earpiece or BT (Buggy/low volume)

There are no custom firmware for 700p. I posted the reasons why before, please search for it. I am not a programmer and my skills is limited. It will need someone else to look into it.
I am looking at EVDO/AAA stuff now only.
