clearing the form is a simple mater of doing
txtUserName.text = string.empty;
in your processing function for all fields to clear.
You can have a function to send the email and have it retrun a boolean value with pass fail to determine to show a success message.
Take a look at this for sending email

for #1 you on your button click, after the submission if finished just set all textbox values equal to "" That will make them all blank, then after all that happens show a div that has "Email Sent" that is initially hidden with divname.style("display") =
"block" or do label.Text = "Email Sent" if you want to use a blank label.
#2 You can send an email in code behind with this (VB.NET)
'Send Email confirming Receipt.
Dim objMM As New MailMessage()
'Set the properties - send the email to the person who filled out the feedback form.
objMM.From = New MailAddress("email@example.com")
'Send the email in text format
objMM.IsBodyHtml = True
'Set the subject
objMM.Subject = "Email Subject"
'Set the body
objMM.Body = "Thank you for submitting. This email is to confirm that everything has been received"
objMM.Priority = MailPriority.Normal
'Specify to use the default Smtp Server
Dim mSmtpClient As New SmtpClient
mSmtpClient.Host = "someip"

I dont have it in C# but using a converter it came up with this (May not be 100% accurate)
MailMessage objMM = new MailMessage();
//Set the properties - send the email to the person who filled out the feedback form.
objMM.From = new MailAddress("firstname.lastname@example.org");
//Send the email in text format
objMM.IsBodyHtml = true;
//Set the subject
objMM.Subject = "Email Subject";
//Set the body
objMM.Body = "Thank you for submitting. This email is to confirm that everything has been received";
objMM.Priority = MailPriority.Normal;
//Specify to use the default Smtp Server
SmtpClient mSmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
mSmtpClient.Host = "someip";
