I would like to be able to type in a value when moving or rotating a selected vertex or group of vertices. When using the Transform panel, the whole object moves. Is this possible? Thanks.

One way is to tweak the value in the pop up window that appears when you press the move or rotate buttons on the side:

Another way is to press G for grab or R for rotate, then press X, Y or Z to constrain the move or rotation to an axis, and then type your value which appears in the top left corner. Backspace also works.

You don't need to constrain the value. Typing only G or R and then typing the X, Y and Z values separated by a kbd>Tab also works.
