Then you risk to have conflicts between your app and rest of the system.

Creating extension is really easy. You can learn it in 2 hours for FE

You can but you should pass your parameters in the name space of

<input type="hidden" name="tx_myext_pi1[myparam]" value="12345" />

You should nit use just "myparam".
