view icons by date created

Is there a way to choose "view icons by date created" which retains the date
that the file was created when it is moved to a different folder? At the
moment it appears that if I copy and paste files to a different folder "the
date created" becomes the date when the files were transferred to the new
folder.

For pictures this is possible since you are able to view them by the date
the picture was taken (as opposed to "created"). Is there some way to
permanently attach date information to a non picture file?

Thanks in advance

I would also be interested to know if there is a way to attach Date Picture
Taken to a file. Sometimes after editing an image, this info gets lost, and
I would like to restore it (or at least an approximation to it as I wouldn't
know the exact time of day, just the date and roughly the time)

I think it is known as EXIF data - not positive.
