have you lowered the car? There are bolts that you can get which allow you to adjust your camber. They are called cam bolts, I found some at my local napa store. I would really recommend taking the car to a tire shop or a shop with an alignment rack. If you try to eyeball it, chances are that you will have weird handling, and possibly accelerated tire wear. I fixed my negative camber issues on my 91 eclipse gs-t at my local community college while I was taking the suspension class. I have since steppe up to an evo8. Mitsubishi's are my favorite!

caster is adjusted at the rear of the lower control arms. Camber is fixed and cannot be adjusted by normal means (though special off-set ball joints are available to do that) Toe in is adjusted by turning the sleeves in or out on the tie rod ends. None of this should be done at home though crude adjustments can be made in order to get the front end reasonably straight. Adjustments are made on an alignment machine that allows precise adjustments to all you mentioned as well as front/rear tracking.
