I'm not sure it's only the ``35 PS fonts'', but as I'm not using  
Leopard, I really don't know.

I don't think mathpazo uses true small caps; CM and LM do, as pxfonts  
(Palatino-based as mathpazo).

Just as with mathpazo: \textsc{...} or {\scshape ...} for small  
capitals, and \oldstylenums{...} for old style figures.

Commands and declarations for small caps and old style figures are  
the same. Also, have a look at the TeX-Gyre project:
