    Which documentclass do you use? Maybe you can load package tocbibind for entries of LoF, LoT and Bibliography in ToC.

    To remove the ToC from ToC use option nottoc: \usepackage[nottoc]{tocbibind}. If your LoF and LoT are chapters in a book or report class or sections in an article class their ToC entry will be formated like the other chapter or section entries. To answer your other question a real minimal working example is needed.

Answering your last comment.

LaTeX provides the \addcontentsline{<file>}{<kind>}{<text>} macro which adds an entry to <file> (typically toc or lof or lot) for Table of Contents, List of Figures or List of Tables; where <kind> is the name of a sectional division (e.g., chapter, subsection) for the ToC or figure or table for the List of ...s; and <text> is the title.

So, if you have an unnumbered chapter called, say, Abstract:

% text of the abstract

will put the title Abstract and the page number in the ToC formatted as a chapter entry.

This is described in more detail in the tocloft (> texdoc tocloft) package which can also be used for the other parts of your question.

To get the LoF and LoT listed in the ToC (assuming they are only on one page, if not use tocbibind):

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Figures}
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{List of Tables}

As Peter Wilson told, by adding the following code, page number of Abstract will appear in ToC


Further, if someone faces the wrong page number of Abstract add the following code:

    Better to put the \addcontentsline.. after the chapter heading in the included Abstract file, then it will refer to the actual page number. Commented Nov 2, 2019 at 19:03
