How to access characters created in Windows Private Character Editor

Hello,

I have been looking for a way to create characters that consist of several small letters (including "a", "c", "p",  "s", and "x") each with a macron directly overhead.  Somewhere I read that this was possible by using the Windows Private Character Editor.

I have been looking for some type of resource that explains how this is accomplished but have not found anything that really explains it.  I've been able to successfully transfer a small character into the grid and then color in the macron overhead.  However, I'm not sure if I'm doing that in the simplest/easiest way possible nor do I know where to go from there.

Could someone explain the specific steps involved in the process or point me to a source that does?  More specifically, it would be helpful to understand:

1) the simplest/quickest way to create a custom character in the first place

2) the steps for making that character accessible in the character map

3) how to most easily access the character from any app

4) is the character map wherein custom characters are saved the same as the character map that comes up when you click Insert > Symbol or is it a separate map.  If separate, how is the custom character map opened or accessed?

Thanks
