To answer your first question, you can use the Control key to move around the Atlas. While holding the Control key (which turns the cursor into a hand) you can click-and-hold your left mouse button to move.
If you have a trackpad, you can pinch-to-zoom, otherwise you can use Control + or Control - to zoom in and out.
To zoom in quickly to a desired location, drag a box with your mouse and then double-click inside the box.
Also, "Control Alt -" will zoom you all the way out.
To answer your second question, you can definitely create your own locations in the Atlas.
The first step is to create a User Layer ("Define User Layer" from the drop-down menu).
The next step is to add whatever you want to the new User Layer you've created:
1. Select your new User Layer and go to "Edit User Layer" from the drop-down menu.
2. An editing palette appears (see the help documentation or podcasts to learn more about using the editing palette).
3. Click "Done" at the bottom of the editing palette when you're finished adding items to your User Layer.
