I can only really answer one of those... Yes, there are plenty of food facilities in the terminals, including a Brooklyn Brewery. There is a food court with your standard airside eateries.
I don't recall seeing any smoking vestibles, like they have in St. Louis, but then again, I was not looking for them. Since you will have to clear customs and immigration anyways, the exit to the outside is no more than 100 ft from getting out of customs, from there just pop outside, light up, then head back in. It is really easy, even if you have to change terminals, but remember to catch the inter-terminal train, go upstairs.

I think if you're flying CO all the way through you'll stay within Terminal C (I know some CO flights leave from Terminal A but don't think MIA is one of them?) You will still have to collect your bags, clear customs, drop them off again then clear security so it doesn't matter either way, it'll probably just take you 5 minutes longer if you have to change. Immigration at TC is very quick though in my experience which is why EWR is my airport of choice as there is less chance of missing your connection die to long queues.
As for smoking I can happily say there are no smoking areas airside within the airport. You will have to go outside once you have cleared customs and get your fix there.
Food facilities in Terminal C are very good and much better than a lot of other US airports.

If you are flying to MIA on CO then you won't technically have to change terminals, but you might have to change concourses. Of course the only hassle here is a bit of a walk, don't have to go back through security, and customs is located in the terminal

All CO international flights arrive at Terminal C, CO's main terminal. Your connection will be within the same terminal, smoking is permitted outside only.
Terminal has excellent assortment of shops and restaraunts, just walk around and pick up a concessions guide. The C-1 and C-3 concourses offer the best choices, if you want an authentic New Jersey Diner they have one in the C-1 concourse.
There's even a letter penned by President H.W. Bush commented on how much he enjoyed their omlettes, hanging in the window of the diner.
