Photoshop: Font Readability

Font typing and readability:
-The spacing, width and shape of letters change arbitrarily. They also change when dragging the type-tool when the font is active for editing.
-The second letter after a capital letter is often spaced slightly too close to the capital letter.
-When typing with font Myriad Pro, the Italic also changes the basic shape of letter "a".

Possibly same for other fonts.

iMac on a 21" screen. Updating the Photoshop CC didn't resolve these.

Could you post actual examples? 

As for the Myriad Pro Italic: 
Italic Fonts are intended to change the shape of (some) letters and not just slant them (and the effect might be even more noticeable with Antiqua fonts), so I suspect what irks you here is actually »working-as-intended«. 
Photoshop’s »Faux Italic« might be what you are looking for. But be aware that it may cause problems in vector output.

I would very much like an example of the first bullet point, with a specific font and steps.

As for the second bullet point, what's your baseline?  Which app(s) are you seeing "do it right" and why do you believe this?

And, for the last one, are you sure that this isn't how the font is designed?
Thanks,David

Myriad Pro in Photoshop, typing in text and dragging the type tool while in edit.
As for the second one, same font,  that's how it can appear reading, for example word "Elop".  This is also varies arbitrarily with the type tool moving issue, where Font spacing, width and shape is not consistent.
The third point was answered above, thanks.
