OK, lets try to be a bit more forthcoming and give some answers...

`C-h C-m' shows the Emacs manual.  `C-h m' shows the mode  
documentation, and
in the Agenda mode it does show all available commands.
Furthermore, both org-mode and org-agenda-mode have menus which
contain a pretty complete list of commands.  So does the printable

Would you like to suggest a key for such a command?
Note also the variables org-show-hierarchy-above and its siblings
which can be configured so that more context becomes visible when a  
command is shown from the agenda.

THis is hard, and just icing on the cake.  Not necessary in my view.

There is a search view which searches headline and content
for text and regexps.  You can then drill down with tags.

That sounds life experience and wisdom.  In what context do you mean

`C-c a m' is at least half-way what you want.

Again C-c a m does this, after you have remembered how
the syntax for tags and property searches works.
