```Look at ?image, ?contour and in the lattice package ?contourplot,
?levelplot, ?wireframe, ?cloud and in scatterplot3d package
scatterplot3d.  Try example() on each one, e.g. example(image),
to get an idea if its what you want. Also google for the R Graph Gallery
and look through the charts there.

For the second question you can customize the x axis labels
by not drawing them in plot and drawing them yourself using axis:

tt <- 19 + 0:40
plot(tt, tt, xaxt = "n")
axis(1, tt, paste(tt, "00", sep = ":"), cex.axis = 0.5)
abline(v = tt, col = "grey")  # optional
