The 3d cursor can be moved my simply LMB LMB clicking anywhere in the viewport. Is there a faster, and easier way to position the 3D cursor?

In both edit mode and object mode; press N to open the Properties. Scroll down to the 3D cursor. There are three number fields one each for the X, Y, and Z axes. For finer control use Alt or Ctrl while dragging the mouse.
Note the coordinates are always in Global, how the transform orientation is set makes no difference.
