Some of those things can be done using password policies:


Note that such policies only affect authentication *to the LDAP server*
so you will need to consider how your applications use LDAP:
If they authenticate users by binding to LDAP as the user then the
password policy will probably do what you want. On the other hand,
if authentication is done by reference to attributes read from the
user entry then the policy will not do anything.
