How do I find and/or select folders according to their contents?

For example:
I want to find all the folders that contain a file with xxx in the name (or any other criterion/criteria by which files may be searched)

I want to find al the folders with total contents greater than nnnMb
I want to find all the folders that contain more than nnn files
I want to find all the folders without subfolders

I don’t seem to be able to use Spotlight for this.
Can anyone suggest a solution or, indeed, an app which can perform this function?
