You can't, interactively.

You also can't.

You can do both these things via kickstart. Supplemental repositories
should be back in F19 - they were supposed to be in F18, but no-one got
time to write the code - but individual package selection is removed
intentionally on the basis that it's not worth carrying a whole package
installation GUI in the installer. In most cases you can tweak package
selection post-install. If you really really need to do it at install
time, you can use a kickstart.
