There are a few packages out there you may want to try:



if you use the memoir documentclass:


additionally you may find interesting:

tocloft - package to control TOC entry layout (and hence section titles in TOC, too)

fancyhdr - package with commands affecting the header and footer layout; may come handy, if you have the section titles in the header/footer.

The above list includes rather 'user-friendly' packages. However, if you want full control, you will want to try titlesec, which is created for advanced users and I assume will make you sweat much more.
