On the first frame you can put \titlepage to make appear author, date, 
institute.. About the \noauthor query, there is maybe such an option however 
you can customize already existing beamer themes, it is quite 
straight-forward. (See files in your latex distribution in the directory 
beamer/theme to understand how existing themes work)

You have to put this in the outer theme you use:
\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}
