How do I make a stem "cross staff" on piano?

The notes I have here are, not in that order: C right below the treble clef, D on the treble clef again, G on the treble clef and another G, an octave below, still on the treble clef. I'd like this lower G to be on the bass staff and the stem to extend.

And I can't figure out how to do that. I have looked online for the best part of three hours and still cannot figure out. And no, I won't use voices. How do I do that?

How do I write an arpeggio spanning several staves (piano)?

Question is in the subject, really. Unless my English fails me _again_ and those are not staves I'm talking about.

Anyway, I have a series of 5 notes, three of which are in the bass clef and the two others in the treble clef; and they are meant to be played as an arpeggio.

I have input the scores separately on both staves, at the same beat, but I do not see how I can make the arpeggio extend from the bass clef to the treble clef, or the reverse. I have tried shortcuts which I thought were obvious (for instance, selecting the arpeggio sign and pressing Ctrl plus up or down arrow) but no luck.

How do I do this?

Copyright infringement concern

There has been some concern about copyright infringement here lately and I thought of my song cycle which I recently embellished with photos of the poet (Emily Dickinson) that were taken in the 1860s. One such - https://musescore.com/user/29586932/scores/5611797 
I now fear the possibility that someone "owns" these. Could this be possible?
If so, that is a problem. I recently tried to get permission from  publisher to use words from an early 20th century poet and I never received a reply in 5 weeks. I would not even know how to find out who would have rights to these old photos, let alone expect a reply. 
Do you have any knowledge of this?

Importantly, I would like to know if there is a problem, will I be forewarned or is my music just yanked out like an old molar?

Repeats broken on site

A week or two ago I asked about this. When I use the Nice Keys or Touhou soundfont and upload a score with that audio, when you listen through, repeats don't work. Here's some examples in my scores:

Here's one where I uploaded with and without the soundfont.

Original Video Game Soundtrack

Hey y'alls

I have been working on the soundtrack for my friend's video game. These two pieces are the themes that will play behind the final battle (I know, I'm great at making creative names :-P). They both have the same innitial two minutes twenty-four seconds, but following this, their tones change completely. The first one (Final Battle) is lighter and a bit faster. I tried to build a bit of tension before the very end. The second one (Final Battle Dark) is much darker (hehe, get it?) I use slow and low brass, a viola, and we hear the tortured wailing sound that is the theme for the game's enemy: the wraiths.  Hope you enjoy, and constructive feedback is always welcome, be it positive or negative.
