[ESS] List of ESS functions

Over the years, I've collect many bits I've added to my .emacs file
such as these:

(global-set-key [f8] 'ess-switch-to-end-of-ESS)
(global-set-key [f9] 'ess-switch-to-ESS)
(global-set-key [f7] 'comment-region)
(global-set-key [S-f7] 'uncomment-region)

I've been trying to work out how to make the mini-buffer as tool-tips
remain until the function call is finished and it would help if I knew
what sort of thing can be done.  This list has had reference to using
(require 'ess-eldoc) but there's something about the context in which
it's used I haven't sussed out yet.

Where does one find a list of things such as "ess-switch-to-ESS"?
I've never quite managed to get my head around how the Emacs help
system works.  M-x apropos-documentation has way too much and I've not
worked out how to subset it to get what refers to ess specific bits.
(Searching for "ess" brings up every reference to "message" so that's
not much use.

I'm using ESS 5.3.11 and R-2.8.1 on a Fedora/Centos type platform.
