Canada Taxes and Shipping

I would dearly like to see detailed steps on how to add Tax rules to PowerStore 2 with Ecart 5. I'm trying to set up a Powerstore for Canada and keep running into issues like this with taxes, shipping and payment *whew*.

I am just learning and will need step-by-step instructions.

1) I do not charge taxes outside Canada
2) I charge rate PST 8% + GST 5% for Ontario Customers
3) I charge 5% for the rest of Canada

Can I just open the ecart object and inactivate the previous entries and create a Canada Post shipping rule?
I would like to base my shipping charges on the total weight of items in the cart.
instructions needed here also.

ALSO: is there any way for my customers to preview the added shipping and taxes BEFORE they enter their payment info. this would be a HUGE issue for me as a shopper?

many thanks in advance,
