But when changing a time of flight, there are no options of putting in any airport codes. I guess I'll have to call and hope they wave the offline booking fee

How do I search by segment? Its a direct flight.
I would prefer ewr as the time and location is preferable.

If it's a direct fight you need to suck it up and call BA in order to book it if it doesn't show up on ba.com

Don't know about your second question.
Regarding the first one, this is from the knowledgebase:

-Other partners include Aer Lingus and Alaska. These airlines can only be booked by calling BA at 800-452-1201.

How do I get BA to show me more flights on AA...

For example its showing all morning flights and I want to book an evening flight (which I checked on AA is available) but I guess there is limited space so its displaying all morning flights.

Do I need to call BA to book this?

Yes they do. It's ridiculous that ba.com can't get their act together to fix their search software to include later flights as well. The funny thing is that some reps are clueless. When I called them to book a later AA saver flight which I knew was available but not showing on their brilliant search engine the rep first argued that only those morning flights are available, and I should call AA to take it up with them. But of course being a ddf'er we know more than the reps themselves. So after being firm and polite and a hold of five minutes she booked the later flights for no charge.

Press the option to make a new booking, they usually pick up right away.
