How do i (can i) place in a cell a message - that isn't part of the active
I want to tell the user the data type they should be entering as 'date type
01/01/2012' and that the message will disappears as the user starts typing
Thanks for any help

There is no "date type" in a spreadsheet. You can leave it up to the user.

Any of:
13 sep
sep 13
and many other input methods yields the exact same date of current month's 13th (which is unformatted day number 41165 in September 2012).

Your suggestion "01/01/2012" is ambiguous anyway because it is unclear if "01/02/2012" refers to the 2nd of January (USA) or 1st of February (other planet).
