string variables (and date time)

I couldn't get this to work. 
take 2 or more (number, string or lenght...) variable values, concatenate in a string, store in another variable. (preferably directly with formula in variable field or through custom featurescript feature..) 
(ideally add a date time in there as well, but I guess that isn't possible in featurescript due to no date operations available.)  
Allready worked out how I can then store the result variable as a partnumber/ name property. 

In case you need to know why: naming parts on the fly for custom frame constructions. 

PS:  I would also like to be able to take the specific configuration settings back down to the individual part level to store in metadata/ properties.
for instance, if I set a customer name in the top assembly (configuration variable) , can i get that variable into the level of the individual part?  (slightly different different usecase in real life, but fitting example) 
Is this possible?
