If you're not using widgets, you can do the same, it will just take a bit more coding on your part, but use the same concept. Without specifics, I don't think I can go much deeper on implementation for most viewed, but I can give you the other two.

Same deal for most recent posts,

Register the sidebar and use the existing widgets to place the required widgets into the new sidebar.
