Basically, I'm looking for information on logging connections (who's
connecting and when), what the users are doing when connected (creating
tables, updating data, etc), and if there are any system messages (like when
the postgresql server is started, stopped, if it has problems, etc).

Yes to the first two questions under number 1.  Not sure what you are
looking for on the last one.

Yes to number 2 if you configure it correctly although I don't know if it
can write to a file and screen at the same time.

Open the postgresql.conf file.

This page in the docs might help.
