I don't think you can do that within iPhoto, somebody correct me if I'm wrong. Maybe using keywords might be the next best thing. In the View menu > Keywords > Add Keywords.

The focal lengths of my manual primes are listed when I do a "Get Info" of a photo in iPhoto.

iPhoto does not allow you to edit metadata, generally. There is a batch edit for changing dates. However, if you really want to make significant changes to your pictures' EXIF data, then I suggest using ExifTool. It has a bit of a learning curve, but it is extremely powerful.
