Carbonation can be calculated, both bottle priming and kegging.

Sober up and do a search, lots of info and calculators for this very thing

The length of time for head retention is full of variables that it can not be determined consistently. The malt selection you choose, the amount of hops added, the volume of CO2 added, the temperature of the beer, etc. Basically, it's a science experiment that could take you years to understand. There are whole books written on the subject and still the foam on top of your beer is a mystery.
