    If you cant select in 2D, click on it in 3D then rotate in 2D.

    What do you try?
    You need to click the selection box again for the turn handles to appear, or use Ctrl-M for transform dialog to show up.
    In case with point entities, which models are, you can type in angles in the entity's properties.

    [ and ]

    If it doesn't seem to snap you may have snap-to-grid off, toggle that with shift+W.

    Ctrl-W toggles ignore groups, the shortcut for that is Shift-W.

    To enable the selection/turn handles in the 3D view, you have to press the X key. This will allow you to move, scale, and rotate the objects in the 3D view just like in the 2D view.
