seam for crack and general contact

Hello everyone.

I am an ABAQUS user and recently interested in ANSYS. I have two questions as a newbie.

1) Do you know how I can make a seam in the middle of a part like the one available in the ABAQUS for modeling a crack?

2) Do we have a general contact option or something equivalent in ANSYS ? This type of contact is very useful especially when we have a very complicated assembly with moving parts in unpredictable directions and many surfaces are interacting with each other.

Thanks for the help
