to get אב:
Download the Hebrew Language Pack, if you can.

For a line:
There's a button next to the shading button that makes a line across the whole page.

You can try and use aleph bais there

Tab Stop and double click it to set the ___ formatting (I haven't done it in hebrew but works great in english)
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

i tried setting it there, problem is that no matter if i set it to right or left it still puts the numbers on the english side, rather than on the right for yiddish

It's hard to explain but if you click somewhere in the ruler it'll put a little black L and if you double click it you can set a leader (for the underline). Then if you press tab you will get a space until that spot and if you set the leader it'll be underlined

To create the hebrew numbering system go to a blank document, set the text drection as right to left, and type א. (with the space after) and it will create the numbering system for you. Once that is done you can go to the numbered list icon and you will see this numbering format in the "Document Number Formats" and if you right click you can add it to the library to be available in other documents.

It puts the period to the right of the א and all new text too. It even switches a ( to a ) and puts it on the right.

Not if it is a right to left section. If Paragraph Direction doesn't do it then go to the Page Layout popup and on the Layout tab you can set the section direction. Just right aligning is inadequate. You need to change the direction.
