Is it possible for plugins loaded with "load_library" to draw custom diagnostic messages to the game screen?

This is a labor of love.  However, Jusete really could use a hand with the rendering farm costs on the from-scratch models being created here.

Not unless you're a code wizard.  The current version of the driver isn't exactly abandoned, but it's not being worked on, either (it used 2010 build tools).  There is a crew working on bringing the code into a modern tool-chain and updating the embedded libraries (e.g. ffmpeg), but there are still a couple of kinks (like actually getting it to work) to sort out before any thought can be given to new features.

That is, using this mod, you can attach to the game (FF VII (Steam ver.) Without downgrade and 7 Heaven) Remako mod?  :?

This is not a mod.  It's a replacement graphics driver.  Remako wouldn't work without it.

With this graphics driver, can I make Remako mod work with the current version of the game? That would not be necessary to use 7th Heaven and did not need to patch the game to the 1998 version.

Yes, but...
1.  That you're even asking this means you wouldn't know how.
2.  Your question doesn't even belong in this thread.
