ancestor & years of divergence

Hi,

I have a set of aligned protein sequences.  I can calculate the phylogeny
using neighbour-joining method (PHYLIP).

I would like to be able to:
	a. predict a common ancestral sequence
	b. compute the divergence in years
How do I go about this?

Also, would it be better to use the DNA sequences?  

Please let me have your views and point me in the right direction.

Cheers,

Shoba
