For the first, I'm not sure what type of properties you mean.
Permissions: chmod and chown
Copying/Moving: cp and mv, respectively
Deleting: rm
For all of the above, the "recursive" option, -R, can be applied to
include subdirectories.  For more usage info, see the man page for each
command, accessible by typing 'man <command>' (as in, 'man rm' or 'man
chmod') (without the quotes).
