Although it might not be the problem, what kind of pickups are on the guitar? Humbucker or single-coil? Single-coils don't always cause hissing with the right amp, but still it may be part of the problem. And if you've got cheap cables, that can definitely cause some of the crackling when moving around. I'd recommend Quantum cables -- I've been using them ever since I was weened off of the really really cheap beginners crap cords. They sound great and are durable -- I haven't had to switch in...jeez, I don't know if I've ever switched. Anyway, they're decently priced. Just check out different ones at your guitar shop and be sure that they're not too thin or cheap. That might take care of the hissing too.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!
