Flow accumulation of additional data

I am looking at accumulating values of data along a stream network to determine likely points of stress. I am aware that I can weight flow accumulation but am interested in an accumulated average value for slope much like a flow accumulation grid. In addition I would like to accumulate forest canopy as well. I already have a DEM, canopy and slope grid. I would also like to know if there is a way of capping the accumulation. For example can I limit the accumulation to the upstream nearest 5000 cells?

Question 1) How can I create an "flow" accumulation grid of other grid data?
Question 2) Can I set limits on the number of upstream cells to accumulate?
