Default [Q] menu button and back button with the s-pen on GN2.

I can't tap on the menu button and back button with the s-pen on GN2.
Is there a way to get the s-pen to take you back to the home screen ?
I read some thread (from 2011 and 2012) about "menu button" and "return button" of GN2 and I wanted to know if definitively it was impossible to use these two buttons with s-pen.
Today I'm on custom Rom Android 4.3 DN3.
For the moment I use "GMD Spen Control.apk" who is a good substitut.
Maybe There's a way to make these keys work with the s-pen
Your advice is welcome

It's a hardware feature.. so not possible with our note 2.

OK, i understand.
So, definitely no solution to make it work directly with s-pen
Only solution is by the screen itself and with an app
Many thanks for quick reply and explanation
