QB Issue Resolution:
reports that are available in QBO can be customized to some extent when you click the customize button, you have to experiment
premier is desktop and is a completely separate program that does not interface with QBO, like QBO it has standard reports that also can be customized using the report customize button, again you have to experiment to see if you can get what you want.
There are custom report writers in the marketplace, they are very pricey
As far as hiring someone, check for a pro advisor in your area
