The thing is probably quite complicated and in depth. Being more specific might be useful.

Short answers - yes you can fertilise with artificial and organic (i.e. manure) fertilisers.
And certain vet drugs will be approved and others non-approved.

You can fertilise on an organic farm with artificial fertiliser provided it is an approved artificial fertiliser; an example of which would be, I suspect, lime in prill form, but it should be written down in some form of the 'word's' you would get when you are approved as organic.
