I can't help with #1, as I'm not on Windows.

> 2. Browse and install packages.

I install packages (although I think the only ones I use are ones I've created) by downloading the file, then calling `(load "/path/to/file")`.

> 3. Write code with syntax highlighting.

I use Emacs. I use the same syntax highlighting as Common Lisp with this line in my Emacs config: https://bitbucket.org/zck/.emacs.d/src/de1b94f07f5d89fb88e1b....

There is an Arc editing mode that ships with Anarki (https://github.com/arclanguage/anarki/blob/9e53a1f2ed0158869...), but I've never tried it. I should!

To be fair, though... when most people say they want to "browse and install packages" for a language, they don't mean including local files through a REPL. Although that is the best we can do in Arc for now.
