Does anyone know where to find a script that scans for warez and then mails you the results (that runs via a cron job daily maybe)? And another script I'm looking for is one that is like the PSA usagemeter (found at http://www.matrixscripts.com/) but that is for Ensim instead of Plesk. A service as good as alertra (http://www.alertra.com) i.e it can ping the servers once every 1-5 min. but that is free. And one last script.... One like the real time tracking that is built into LivePerson and ClickChatSold that lets you login and see where the vistors are going in real time but that is free?

I dont warez or anything. But, I dont think you would be wanting to use scripts, and I dont think people who host warez sites appreciate scripts much. In general, I dont think people appreciate scripts poking around. But, good luck.
On your other two questions, unfortunately, i can think think any.
Have you already tried ScriptSearch.com, CGI-Resources.com et cetera?

people who host warez should not be doing so for both legal and technical reasons. I will not go into a legal discussion, but from technical standpoint, they way warez distro operate is most often they find an anonymous server with writable directories and fill them up with gigabytes of pirated software. This ftp server is then publiciced on multiple bulletin boards and in less than 24 hours you can lose hundreds of gigabytes in bandwidth and be liable financially for it.
So definitely you want to make sure that that you set a rigit bandwidth/space quota for users, prohibit anonymous ftp servers. Im sure you write a script that looks for unreasonably large files or collection of files with similar names(like rar archive that were broken up into many sequentially named files).
For the server monitor I would consider using either Big Brother(i dont know what their licensing is now, used to be free) or NagiosServers Alive(desktop) or ServerStatsBy the way, this probably doesnt belong in "Running Web Hosting Biz" forum
