nope there is no IFE on either airline. I know that easyjet give out a free inflight magazine though this is normally filled with adverts!
The best advice to give you in regard to your seat query is to arive at the gate early and then sit in the seat you want on the aircraft as the seats on both EZY and FR arent pre-assigned and also you cannot pre-book seats. IMO its also best to sit near the front of the aircraft as they normally only use the front door for boarding and dis-embarking, thus youll be able to leave the aircraft quicker.

At least Ryanair uses both front and rear doors for boarding and dis-embarking, and the best advise I can give you is to chose the rear door and take a seat in the back of the aircraft: Most passengers (such as BY188B ) take the front door, so the chances to have the middle seat free are much higher when you're in the back. I've been on several Ryanair flight with load factor about 90%, all the free seats were middle seats in the back.
Regarding exit rows: As BY188B said, it's free seating, so you should be among the first passengers to board the aircraft. Boarding is done by security (sequence) numbers, on Ryanair "priority" boarding is number 1 through 65, on Easyjet it's 1 through 30 think.

out of 10 easyjet flights I managed to get 3 times the row 13 seats, which are the emergency-exit seats with a lot of legroom, and 2 times I got seat 1A or 1F. All other flights at least I got the windowseat I wanted...
...BECAUSE I GOT THERE IN TIME!
Most of their flights are very short, so IFE is not a necesity in my opinion!
