The default output by Stata commands is good for looking 
at during the analysis phase of research, but is not so 
good for reporting, as you noticed. There are several 
user written packages that help with that, e.g. -estout-, 
which you can get by typing in Stata:
-ssc install estout-.

There is a website dedicated to lots and lots of examples
of how to do stuff with -estout-. The answers to your
concrete questions are discussed here:

correlation table:

regression table:
http://repec.org/bocode/e/estout/esttab.html

Hope this helps,
Maarten
