Default WAC 5.01 & Widescreen GUI: How to fix...

I have played WAC5.01 with the Manos Widescreen GUI and the Optimined Ahenerbe GUI, both are very good when it comes to represent the optics, instruments and maps, however I have some trouble with both of them and would like to try fixing it myself. For that I need some basic pointers.

Manos GUI:
- I would like to enable binocular and UZO zooming; which files need editing?
- I would like to make the message fonts more bright for easier reading. Is it possible to exchange the files in the Fonts folder, or edit them for that result?

Optimized Ahnenerbe GUI:
- In the main menu, the orange fonts are horrible and hard to read; is it possible to change the color and brightness (e.g. white and bright?)

- Is it possible to make all the crew management (submarine picture in the crew managment section, and all included grafics, the crew etc.) appear bigger to fill more of the allocated space?

- I want to fix all the broken mouse clicks for moving my ego inside the sub. For that, I guess I need to edit the files Commands_de.cfg and Commands_en.cfg in the data\Cfg folder, is that right? Are there other files to edit?

Thanks very much for some modding experts to give me the right pointers

HanSolo78 has pointed me to replace and make changes in the Cameras.dat file which govern the exact positioning of player in the sub and where the camera returns after a right click. Also the optics zooming is controlled here.

As for the fonts, a different color than orange wouldn't give much contrast either, you would need to increase the size also, it's more complicated, I think the modders have done the best they could, however if too small it's horrible to read, especially on bright underground.
