pagelayout & Date Format issues

let me know any Idea on below oncs:

1. Can we customize Standard Page Layouts without Using VF ?

Brief details :
I have Contact Object  and fiels like  firstName, lastName, phone,mobile,  Address1, Address2 ,Address 3.....
By using standard Page layout i created diffent sections like

Personal Information ( Section)
    firstName, lastName, phone
Contact details ( Section)
    Phone, landphone, mobile
Address ( Section)
    Address1, Address2 ,Address 3
Now the requirment is , My Business dont want Address as Section ...Instead of section , he wants to some thing different  Box Type or anyOther

I know ,By using Sections only we can divide Under Page Layouts.....
Do you have any idea, Without Using VF , can we go for Customize page layouts ?
2. Date format (EST) format issue When export data into CSV / Excel file?

Before export data , I updated Time Zone in below areas:
  1. Data loader 
  ii.User Time zone
  iii. System Time zone
 In Dataloader, When i query , Date format looks Correct
  2020-09-21 19:41:52
 But, when i export into CSV / Excel, the date format display as Below :

I tried, multiple ways , but its not working.
Any Idea on this?

1.Unfortunately,there is no other way to customize the sections on the pagelayout other than using the Vf Pages.

2.Yes,it accepts different formats but whenever we export the data then the date format will be like 
  • YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sssZ
The other formats which will be supported while importing are as below:
  • YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss
  • YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ
  • YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.sssZ

Kindly mark it as best answer if it helps so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,
