Brokerage Fees

I need to know how to allocate brokerage fees that result from trading 
stocks/bonds/funds. I need to be able to allocate any fees to the cost of a 
purchase in order to calculate the actual cost per unit. Likewise for a sale to 
be able to calculate the gain(loss).

Another question is how do I move Unrealised gains(losses) to Realised 
gains(losses)? Neither account shows in my list of accounts, however, the 
Unrealised gains(losses) does show on the Balance Sheet. Once the sale is 
complete and the money transferred the the gain should show as Realised 
gains(losses), at least in my mind.
