Pro, but new to musescore questions on fingering

I abhor the use of "c" for the RH "q" finger. "q" is for quattro, pequen~o or men~ique, but the problem with "c" is ambiguity. I need to customize the fingering palette provided in musescore:

loco, I II III IV etc. for positions
timaq for RH fingering

I don't care who else likes it, but that's what I have
been using, and will continue to use.

However, although I won't use it myself, EADGB, which
Villa Lobos used, is superior for string indications
because there are too many numbers in guitar
notation already. When you become used to it,
it is quicker to read with the string letter.

I don't want to use this either, but it should be
available for anyone who might want to put
out a historical bilingual edition. Back in the
day, RH fingering was in the language of
the text, so this was for bilingual editions:

x or +, . .. ... for RH

A very popular piano method of the 19th century
used X1234 instead of 12345 for fingering.

Also, I hope that it is possible to do tab with
notation with nothing but numbers on the
tab, no stems, beams, ties, or slurs, because
they are just clutter when the notes are
present.

I have not even started using musescore,
but it looks like a good prospect as long
as I can customize it.

Also, does the copyright notice appear
in the MIDI output? It should. LilyPond
doesn't do that, last I checked. For shame.

IAC, this is how I start. Can I customize or
not? I don't want to ask developers for features
which already exist.
