Managing JAlbum

I know, I know -- not another web photogallery AskMe question, but: I've actually settled on the gallery itself. I'm using JAlbum. Having made the choice, though, I'm left with two questions:

1. JAlbum makes nice galleries, but doesn't create a top-level index page. (I could hand-code it, but my wife will be doing most of the updating and I don't want her to have to go mucking around in HTML.) The easiest solution, I'd think, would be just to reformat the directory listing into something attractive -- all I really need to communicate to the user is descriptive folder names and upload dates, but I'd prefer to make something more handsome than the standard Apache page. Can anyone recommend a particular PHP file system manager or other solution?

2. JAlbum's auto upload is ridiculously slow -- better just to FTP it. When JAblum makes a gallery, though, it includes a lot of stuff I'm not using -- icon sets, borders, etc. It's not a ton of space, but I'm going to uploading a lot of these galleries, and it'll add up. Is there a programmatic way I can stop JAlbum from including all this, instead of weeding it out before each upload? (I'm using the BluPlusPlus skin.)

How to make collapsible lists on a webpage?

Because I only know pidgin HTML, I'm not sure if what I'm about to ask is Web Design 101 or Web Design 665, but: If I want to have a collapsible list, such that if someone clicked on "Words that start with B" in the following:

Words that start with A
Words that start with B
Words that start with C

the page would then reformat to show

Words that start with A
Words that start with B
Words that start with C

without the whole page having to reload. Can someone please point me to a resource or study-able example?
