In the NetWeaver Portal there are few statistic tools that can be used to gather different information.

See my answer in the following thread:

In this thread I listed few tools that are available in the portal, with a short description and a link to the formal SAP documentation.

Specifically for your questions here are my answers respectively:

1. I believe that the "Activity Data Collector" might be helpful, as one of the measures you can collect is the time it took the request to be rendered (it measures the time the request cycle took).

Due to limitations of architecture, this specific measure can be used only for Portal RunTime iViews and Pages and not for WebDynpro, so it depends on the content you would like to check.

(KM is also collecting different measures on this same mechanism)

2. Using The "Activity Data Collector" you can gather all the timestamps when a user rendered iViews & Pages in the portal, which is actually the activity he did in the portal. You just need to configure to collect this type of information (user, timestamp, etc. according to your need).

     The reports generated by the "Portal Activity Report" won't be sufficient in your case, as they already process the data from the DB tables, and aggregate into predefined reports (can be configured using "Portal Activity Report" iView), but maybe the data gathered in the DB tables can be used - you can query the tables to get information more relevant for you.

See below documentation of the data tables information:

You can compare it with the information that can be collected from the Activity Data Collector:

I hope it helps.
