TOC:
Have you got a cursor in the box? if you select the text box that is not enough you need to double click the box to get the flashing cursor, you should be able to create a TOC on your heading1 and heading2

Page Numbers: 
Page numbers are actually power fields as they dynamically update. For more advanced users, fields can be controlled via the Fields panel.

 To add page numbering:

  • On the Pages panel, select a master page from the Master Page window.
  • Create a text frame to place your page number field and optionally extra header/footer text.
  • From the Text Menu, select Insert>Page Number.

 To change page numbering style:

  • On the Pages panel, select Section Manager.
  • From the Number style pop-up menu, choose from various standard numbering schemes such as Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3), upper/lowercase Roman (I, II, III, i, ii, iii), alphabetic letters (A, B, C, a, b, c) and more.

Table Borders: "What exactly do you want to achieve?"

Take a look at the Frame options in the Table Panel.

The Table panel allows you to adjust the formatting of individual tables within your document.
