How do I hang things on the walls of my apartment without making holes/leaving marks?

My apartment has plain white walls (with a kind of textured wallpaper; it's not smooth). I've got small stuff and heavy stuff that I'd like to hang up on the wall, from small picture frames to large, somewhat heavy piece of cloth.
I'm renting, so I obviously can't do whatever I'd like to the walls, and when I move out, they should be as clean as when I moved in. So no nail holes and the like. Or as an alternative, I'd chance making holes if I could patch it up when I move out, but given the textured pattern of the wallpaper, that may be tricky to do.
Any advice how to hang things? And a secondary question: how would you go about hanging a length of cloth about 3 feet wide by 5 feet long, lengthwise along the wall? Wires? Hooks?
