Ive used a program called DIA for Flowcharts, ER diagrams, It would be able to do some of the stuff you wanted, but there might be better software out their for your specific needs.

For just general pourpose Vector edititor I reccomend inksape, You could do some nice diagrams with that but its not a dedicated peice of software so it would take a lot longer and less conistant.

Do you want pie chart, bar graphs, etc.? Because if so, Excel.

And if you want to make simplified drawings/symbols, etc. any vector program (such as Inkscape of Adobe Illustrator) will work. You just gotta get the assets, which you can either make yourself or purchase from a symbol website (or hire someone specifically to make them or get them from a website that supplies them for free).

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.
