Invulnerability

Of sorts. To remove the risk of dying, procure for yourself a Death Flower. You can find at least one from the graveyard near it's entrance in a bush. As long as your Sim has it in their inventory, the Grim Reaper will not harvest your soul. You can also find 'Unknown seeds' in the graveyard to allow you to reproduce the flower in your garden, and you must find alternative means of getting the flower after one tangle with the Reaper.
If any cheats do not at first work, try activating testingcheatsenabled true before entering them. While every effort has been made to test all of the above cheats to ensure they are reported accurately here, the above technique should solve any possible errors.

Secrets

Free bookcase skills

Buy a bookcase, then have your Sim begin to study. Interrupt the action so that the book is placed on the ground. Sell the bookcase. The book can now do everything the bookcase could have done for free.
Increasing chance to have baby boys - Have a pregnant female Sim eat apples to increase the chance of having a boy.
Increasing chance to have baby girls - Have a pregnant female Sim eat watermelons to increase the chance of having a girl.
Increasing chance for multiple babies - To increase the chance of having twins or triplets, have one or both parents have the lifetime reward of Fertility Treatment.
Increasing chance to have baby girls - Have a pregnant female Sim eat watermelons to increase the chance of having a girl.

Ghost baby

Set one of your female Sim's traits to Kleptomaniac. Go to the graveyard, and have the Sim steal male remains. On the second day after putting the male remains in your home, a ghost will appear at 11:00 p.m. and disappear at 4:00 a.m. It will appear every other day. Socialize with the ghost every night it appears. When you become best friends with the ghost, it will begin appearing every night. Get the "Fertility" reward. Confess your attraction to the ghost. Ask to snuggle on the bed, and kiss him. Try for a baby every night until you start throwing up. You will now have a ghost baby that you can control.

Ghosts in your house

Go to the graveyard, click on all the tombstones, and take all possible tombstones. Return to your house, and place them somewhere in your backyard. You now have a 70% chance of a ghost or two, or even a whole party of ghosts visiting your house each night. To improve your chances, write in the epitaph "Here Lies [Sim's name], The One Who Returns".

Glitches

Problems with Downloading Bought Items

If you just bought something from and you are trying to download it and its not letting you heres what to do.
1. When you go to click on Download, and then a small box pops up saying Error don't worry. Just clear you downloads page if you haven't yet. Don't worry you can retrieve them from the Store, My Store Account, and clicking on Purchase history.
2. If it pops up with Error again, switch out your game to the actually Sims 3 bases game, your expansion pack may no be capable with the Store for some odd reason
3. If none of this has worked, then try turning your computer on/off
4.If none of the above has worked, then re-install your Sims 3 base game.

Hints

Protection from Death

Travel to Pleasant Rest Graveyard, and near the gate, there is a strange bush called a "Death Flower Bush" - Harvest the flower from it. Keep this flower in your sim's inventory, and if you die, you will automatically offer this flower to the Grim Reaper, who will ressurect you in exchange for it. This flower will not reappear, but there are Unknown Special Seeds (requires level 7 Gardening to plant) dotted about near the graveyard (and a few other places) which may grow another Death Flower (and sometimes more if your Sim has the Green Thumb trait to revive the plant.)
