I hope nobody takes this the wrong way, as the internet is first and foremost the place where somebody always takes offence, even when absolutely none is intended.
Anyhow, my point is, LL is about the last place you'll get good answers on traditional processing. What you need to do, if you haven't already, is go to the Analog Photo Users Group. Web site is http://www.apug.org/forums/home.php
I think you'll find your answers there, and then some. Again, please don't anyone take offense at this, but it's simply a matter of going where you can find what you need.
When I want to know about how to do something in Photoshop, I come here first. When I want to know about the difference between using Rodinal and HC-110, I go to APUG. When I want learn about underwater camera housings, I go to wetpixel.com. When I want to talk about astro-phtography, I go to cloudynights.com. When I want to discuss the differences between different 4x5 cameras, I go to the large format photography forums.
..and so on and so on and so on.....
