Modifying the Mode Line

I know this is probably an easy question for the person who knows how to do
this.  I want to modify the Mode Line as it appears in my Emac Session.  I
want to add these features to the ones that already appear (name, mode,
position, etc).  The two changes I would like to make to the Mode Line are:

1) Change the back ground and fore ground colors.  Right now I have a black
back ground for the windows so the Mode Line itself does not appear, but
just the characters on the line.

2.) I want to add the full path as it appears in the buffer list so I know
what directory the file came from.

I know this can be done because I use to do it in my old job but forgot to
take the .emacs file and supporting files with me.

Thanks for your time.
