Java code style help needed, and TODO/Task questions.

First off, if this is in the wrong directory, just leave a comment and I'll delete it. Secondly, I'm only asking the forums because it takes me hours to figure this stuff out sometimes with so many settings. After a large amount of time figuring out Intellij, I'm come to love it over eclipse for the mac!

My instructors tend to be very strict on coding style, so this is important to somewhat figure out. Keeping my programs clean, and readable. Below is a picture of an example.
1. I need my TODO, and comments below it (Both block, and line comments) to be all the way to the left margin.
2. I need both block and line comments within any block statements such as any loops, if statements, etc, to be in in aligned with the blocked statement, as if it were a normal code syntax. (Hope this made sense, check picture).
3. I need both blocked and line comments to the left margin after the blocked loops, and other various code between.

Hope someone might be able to assist me in saving hours of going through all the settings. I love it all, but sometimes different settings are scattered everywhere.
ALSO NOTE: I have checked the comment boxes (Also provided in pictures), but the comments below the loop statements won't move to the left margin when I reformat the code. I got this information and other info from the various help sections on JetBrains' site. But no luck.

EDIT: Forgot to ask about the TODO/task questions. I'm looking for a plugin, or current feature for tasks. Whenever I start a new program I create a list of tasks the the program needs to do. So far, I have it in a TODO comment. Any suggestions on plugins for this? I looked into the time management feature of intellij, but it doesn't seem to work very well for me.

Thank you all very much.
