Hi there.
Here is a possible solution for your first problem.
When the text changes in the textBox1:it gets the most similar item to the one in the textbox from the listbox and puts that item to the 1st row(in the listbox), the 1 which was in the first row changes place with the one which got to the 1st row.
Required elements: 1 listbox (listBox1), 1 textbox (textbox1)

private void textBox1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // the strings in the array
            string[] lbl = getlbl();
            // textbox's text
            string txxtt = textBox1.Text;
            //if there is txxtt in the list box than retieves it's index
            int index = findd(lbl,txxtt,false);
            //theese are pretty obvious
            string[] endy = lbl;
            string y = lbl[index];
            endy[index] = lbl[0];
            endy[0] = y;
        private string[] getlbl()
        {// get list box items
            int c = listBox1.Items.Count;
            string[] its = new string[c];
            //put lisbox's items to the array (its)
            listBox1.Items.CopyTo(its, 0);
            return its;
        private void slbi(string[] inp)
        {//set items
        private int findd(String[] arr,string lf,bool flm)
        {// arr: array to look in lf: string to find bool: full match
            int hp1 = 0;
            while (hp1 < arr.Length)
                if (flm)
                    if (arr[hp1] == lf)
                        return hp1;
                if (!flm)
                    if (arr[hp1].IndexOf(lf)== 0)
                        return hp1;
            return 0;

I hope this helps...
