[ESS] Customizing the Syntax Highlighting in R

I'm coming over to Emacs after using gvim, in which I built a R syntax
highlighting file with thousands of keywords, because I routinely use
numerous R packages.  In the default for Emacs + ESS, I see highlighting for
only a few things, such as <-, TRUE, if, and for.  For example, I would like
to add the following R functions as keywords, such as length, round, nrow,
names, and read.csv in the colour red.  Thank you for any suggestions.
