To print to your HP printer using AirPrint you will need some kind of AirPrint server. It is not enough to just get network connectivity to the printer, you need some software running somewhere to handle some of the communication details.

If you don't want to use the terminal for this task and want a mac 'application' you should look at 'Text Wrangler' by Bare Bones Software. It is freeware, which fits your 'low price' request ;) I use it to print out smaller runs of text, and use it specifically for the line number feature.

Printers are easy, they mostly all work with Macs. Scanners are another story, and drivers for those used to be complex to find and use. However 10.6 introduced far better support for scanners and a number of those now work just out of the box.

You can use the Create Booklet utility which adds an option to “print”, from Preview or any other app, to generate a second pdf file with the pages arranged appropriately to print and bind as a booklet.

There doesn't seem to be a way to do this natively. Your options seem to be: Get a black-and-white airprint printer. Use a black-and-white, non-airprint printer with AirPrint Activator. Use Epson's app which seems to let you print black-and-white photos. Use HP's app which seems to let you choose these kind of settings. Tell Apple you want this feature.
