You ask for too many things at once and all of them need time to explain. I understand that all tools are hard to get into (moreover we have no proper tutorials for them), but that's what you have to do now. See what the tools can do and focus on one project at once. Take your Mideel patch, look how the devs have created a scene change by the script (jump to scene) after that you can pay around with Wallmarket and look what funny Materia you could create or manipulate the weapon stats, then you can go on with Proud Clod. At the end you might come to a point where your questions are more specific and people with the knowledge you seek are more confident to help you.

1: But the music scripts that i found all say either 0 or 1? How do i assign certain tracks?

In Makou Reactor, go to Tools -> Tutorials/Sounds, there you see a list of the Musics that are enabled for the current field. You can either change an existing one or click the green + to add an additional music entry, then assign it the track you want from the list on the right.

3: What about making Contain Materia skill order : #1 Tornado and #3 Freeze instead?

That's easily done with Wall Market. Go to the Materia section and select the Green Materia you want to edit. The 6 fields called "Materia type modifier" do different things depending on what type of materia it is. For Green Materia, it contains the IDs of the magic spells that are learned, in that order. You can see all magic IDs in the Attack section right next to the list (called Attack ID), e.g. Cure is 0, Cure2 is 1, Cure3 is 2 and so on. You'll see that Freeze has ID 47 and Tornado is ID 49. Now select the Contain Materia in the Materia section and simply switch those numbers in the Materia Type Modifier fields.

Where can i find enemy encounter number ids? There are only about ~250 in Proud Cloud and Hojo, and i see #300s.

How do i find out Battle IDs? They are completely different in Proud Clod than Makou Reactor!

Wait, you're mixing up something here. The individual scenes are not the battle formations. Also, Hojo doesn't show any battle formations, only Proud Clod can do that. Each scene contains up to 3 different enemies and 4 possible formations, but each formation can only contain enemies from the current scene (so no more than 3 different enemies can be present in a battle, ever).

In Proud Clod, select a scene and go to Scene Data Management -> Animations/Formations. 4 entries will appear, the first 3 containing informations about the body animations executed by the enemies when performing certain attacks. Select the last entry called Formation. In the new window, you'll see lots of info that might be confusing at first,  including camera positions, the background used in the battle, and of course the enemies present in the battle. (You can add additional enemies to each battle via the bottom table, by entering the enemy's corresponding ID and coordinates on the battlefield. And you can preview your changes by clicking one of the preview buttons nex to the camera table.)

But anyway, the Battle IDs that you seek are the 4 boxes at the top of this window. The catch is that while Makou Reactor uses decimal numbers, those in Proud Clod are in Hex, so you have to convert them (either use a tool, or in your head if you're really good at math). For example, when a Battle ID in Makou Reactor is 380, you'll have to search in Proud Clod for the Battle ID 017C, as that's 380 in Hex.

What is the ID for Ho-Chu? The online calculator for Hex vs Decimal doesn't seem right.

Is 795 right for Ho-Chu?

This one seems to work:

PS : Can Proud Clod change battle encounters on the world map or does that need a new yet to be made program?

Yep, 795 is the Ho-Chu battle that was (presumably) originally intended to be in the Ancient Forest, but didn't make it into the final game for whatever reason. Now you just have to find the various ancient forest fields in Makou Reactor, go to Tools -> Encounters, and add the Battle 795 into one of the free slots (and change the propabilities accordingly).

For your second question: the World Map encounters are also there in Proud Clod (the first 70 or so scenes contain enemies from the world map, and their respective battle formations), and you can change which enemies are present in which battle.

But how do i get Proud Clod to work? I posted the error message earlier.
