Can We access the Document details, and preview windows in vista explorer window

I want to adds some tab pages on to the explorer in vista to show metadat categorically in the bottom document detials view. Is this possible to do? If yes, how?

My another question is is it possible to get the client area of the windows explore somehow. I know IShellBrowser is the container who holds the explorer window but not able to find a way.
My requirement is I will create a window with a splitter. In one pane I want to show some data and in another pane I want to host the whole windows explorer (just without the caption). It is either Xp or vista. Is this also doable.
