why dont you also reply (1) and (2) ?

People respond to the questions they feel they can address, and don't necessarily respond to the questions to which they feel they can't provide a reasonable answer.

Having said that, one thought regarding question 2:

(2) How to make time up to the second in the message bar?

i assume you want the clock visually displaying each second as it elapses. If so, this might not be straightforward, as the mode-line is not updated on a regular schedule, but "when appropriate" (e.g. point has been moved). So say the clock displayed:

 12:24:48

and nothing caused the mode-line to update for 10 seconds (e.g. there was no buffer input), then the next mode-line update would cause the clock to 'jump' to:

 12:24:58

without having displayed the intervening seconds.

i guess you might be able to set up a timer to run every second to deal with this; but more knowledgeable people than i on this list would be better placed to discuss the feasability of that.
