there is a thing called Asking Too Much. Lol.

there's "shell", and there's "term". (and there's "eshell" and
"terminal-emulator")

each one is created to be optimal for some purposes.

Sure, you can add your personal customization on top of any to give
your "happy middle". Though, unless you have a specific customization
question... there's no such as happy middle in the already 4 variants.

my personal q is what's the diff between term and terminal-emulator...
never spend time on it. I'm very happy with just "shell". For any term
need, i switch to a "real" term emulator.

you can switch between term modes. using C-c c-j will put you in line mode where term is behaves like a buffer , then u can use C-c c-k to switch back to char mode. also if you have global set  keys in your .emacs they will work.
