New to Shopify... Seems to be lacking some basic features

I just started using Shopify because I am thinking about switching from GoDaddy however there are two things that GoDaddy has that are really lacking with Shopify. The first being adding customizations to a product. I know there are variants that I can add but I just want to add a checkbox that when selected opens a textbox for the user to fill out a customization text.

The other thing that is missing is that when they select this checkbox the cost is increased to the overall item.

Would anyone know of a way to do these things without having to pay extra each month for an app to do this. I hate to keep spending extra for a feature that should come default.
