I would like the ability to fill in the Caption field based on the Subject field contents plus other, for example, Date, Location and also a fixed text string. Is this possible? Can I create presets that construct the Caption field based on different combinations of other fields?

The Search and Replace plugin is good for permanently setting the captions. If you're only interested in setting the caption field in photos published to services like Flickr, without permanently changing the caption field in the catalog, Friedl's publishing plugins have a similar token-based facility (e.g. Jeffrey's "Export to Flickr" Lightroom Plugin).
