For auto documentation BOL(Books online ) is the best choice. it can be installed at the time of sqlserver installation.
For performance monitoring you can use ACTIVITY MONITOR ,which with SSMS(MAnagement Studio).in this you can monitor the network Io, bufferIO, wait types ,blocking queries and many features which you will come to know as you use it.
Apart from that for performance tuning you can use DTA(database tuning adviser)
I hope this helps.
