    Install all in one seo plugin and it will help you these things... For changing url check your permalinks... You will have to remove date from there...

    Try Custom structure: - /%postname%

    Just go to

    Code:
    http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/options-permalink.php
    and pick custom structure and put
    Code:
    /%postname%
    over there.

    For meta tags, description and keywords... You can add them when creating post or editing them... Just scroll down and you will see these options...

    I would suggest keeping the date in your URL. i have noticed traffic increasing when doing this. This permalink structure works well for me

    /%day%/%monthnum%/%category%/%postname%/
