Simon XT Question

I have a GE Simon XT panel with a 4-button remote and would like to add two functions to it, a light control and a garage door open function.
I have a Z-wave switch on the lights, but when I try to program it in, I go into System Tests>Enter Master Code> and scroll to "Interactive Services" but interactive services is not there. Do I need something added or a new panel to get this to work, or has my monitoring company locked it out?
Also, the * button on the remote is supposed to operate a x-10 device, do I need an interface, or can it be set up to operate the relay for the door opener directly?
Sorry for the simple questions but as you can tell, I am a noob at this.

It takes a power line carrier transformer to use X-10 (which was never released, you would have to use the simon-3 X-10 transformer). Z wave, is dependent on which model you have (only the most recent have the capability) and on a subscription service.
