Admin Category Manager?

I am trying to figure out how to setup an admin page for organizing categories:

View Current Category Structure (Main and Sub categories)
Add New Main Category
Add New Sub Category
Delete Main or sub category
Move Sub Category

I tried searching the forum but didn't find much. Do I need another table in the data base for the sub categories? I saw there were a lot of threads for dealing with main and sub categories. Once I get started I will have more specific questions and can search better, but for now I need a starting point. I also am interested about proper display of this setup. Should I have links to separate pages to do each task, or can I display this all in one php page with no problems?

I then also need help with the menu writer dynamic links for these categories. I figured out the main category, but without having sub categories, I can't play around with that yet. I did have a problem though... The dynamic links for each category went to -- /products_results.php?CategoryID=[CategoryID] which brought up all products regardless of what category they were in.
