Well, it's not that hard, there are some apps out there which can remap keys, but as per your wish, it's not actually remapping totally, total remap is easy, but you want to change some of the function of a single key, which is kinda difficult and a lot of editing work

May be there are some apps which do open apps from volume key trigger, I don't know if it have home key trigger also
I don't remember the app name, you can search for it.


Hit thanks if I helped

Well, sorry for this late reply, but I actually don't know how to do that, I never tried that! And I have no idea about how to do that! I just guess it is possible,
