I'd like to second Mark.
There is a lot of information in the Standard, including the UAXs, and
the Unicode Character Database that would help answer your questions.
The volunteers associated with the Unicode effort have worked hard
putting all that information together - so use it, instead of taking up
their time in repeating it all in personal answers to you.
