Forge, visual mode, sheepshaver, and more?

I have had an idea for a scenario for many years since I completed Infinity (I was perhaps 8 years old), but I was unable to complete it. It was not too complex, I guess it's just I was too immature and too impatient. I don't care.

The thing is I've been working on my old idea, having played every scenario an total conversion I've been able to put my hands on. Having discovered it not long ago, Aleph One is a blessing, not having an old Macintosh at hand anymore. But still, Weland is not enough for me. The visual mode Lua script is too messy and, let's face it, bugs out sometimes. I just don't feel comfortable with it. Kudos to the creator though. In spite of my being unable to work comfortably with it, I think it's a wonderful tool and I love treellama for creating it.

After this overly rambly intro, here's my question: will I be able to create Aleph One scenarios with the original tools (Forge and such) on an emulator like Sheepshaver? If not, how can I convert classic scenarios to A1? Are there viable alternatives to Weland?

Yes, you can call me a noob, for I am one, but the Pfhorums are down right now and I can't find enough info to get me started. I have all my terminal text written down and I'm eager to give it a try and give my love back to the community. Can you help me?
