I cannot even imagine the level of misunderstandings you seem to have on how the process works. New characters are proposed to either ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2 or the Unicode Technical Committee or simultaneously to both (like I have done). In all cases they will be included in ISO/IEC 10646 and The Unicode Standard only after an agreement has been worked out on the need to encode them and on their names by both committees. Sometimes this is a very long process, and it would be wrong to state that some characters are "discovered" by either organization.
Incidentally, the character names in the various ISO/IEC 8859 parts were aligned with those in the 10646/Unicode when those parts were last updated some ten years ago.
I can only agree with Mark on his suggestion. Also, you have already been pointed out several times where to find the relevant information.

Aihe: Re: Latin Script
Link is working, thanks! I spent some times with no luck on link as
well as unicode.org, because I wanted to find:
The list of Latin letters/symbols that Unicode has discovered.
Here, a letter/symbol with LATIN in its name in Unicode/ISO is a Latin
letter/symbol. And I call a "Latin letter/symbol" discovered by
Unicode if it created the name before ISO in the standard otherwise
discovered by ISO.
Can you email the list of Latin letters/symbols that Unicode discovered?
Can you also email list of letters/symbols that are not Latin but each
has LATIN in its name?

Can you email the list of these letters/symbols as well, including names?

See the following for the (many) differences between characters with
the Latin script, and those with LATIN in their names.
I'd suggest taking a more focused approach to learning about the
standard, rather than trying relatively scattershot questions to this
list. You might read through at least the first 3 chapters of the
Unicode Standard, plus the Scripts UAX. These are all online for free
