How can we create contrasting plot, text plot with tag and datetime, bulletpoint plot in Grafana with Simple Json

We are switching to Grafana from Geckoboard. We have a bunch of API’s that return JSON. How do we modify the format to feed Grafana using simple json plugin? We are on Grafana Cloud. Moreover, how can we create contrasting plot, two sets of data on both sides of X-axis to show the contrast, notice Y-axis data must be positive, no negative. How can we create text plot with tag and datetime to show the status of a job? How do we create a bulletpoint plot to track that we are in the target zone? Please see attached for screenshots.
