Creating an AppExchang​e custom app installer?

I am creating an AppExchange app which requires the user to follow a lengthy installation guide, adding new fields to page layouts, buttons, and setting up some security settings.   I am looking to automate these steps to make the installation as quick and painless as possible.


Is this something that can be accomplished via the API?  Can I add fields and buttons to page layouts via the API?  Or does anyone have a better idea of how to accomplish this?




I'd like an answer to this as well.



I am also looking for a solution to this.

We have a package to which we would like to add ability for users to decide whether they want to install custom fields or not. It would be also nice if after installation we can offer them that option as well so they click a button the the custom fields get installed but I know that this is not possible.
