Repeater & FCB1010 Woes

I'm hoping someone can help me with controlling repeater with the 
fcb1010 before i totally lose it.

One of the main confusions is this- without me programming anything on 
preset #2, the pedals on preset 2 can scroll through track select 1-4, 
engage play, record, overdub, stop, mute track 1, mute track 2, and mute 
input, which is a hell of a lot better set-up than i've managed to program 
myself as of yet.
But this is (part of)what i'm not getting- I thought the fcb1010 can only 
send 2 CC messages per preset, and that repeater only responds to cc 
messages, and not program change messages. If so, how can this many 
different functions be accessed? Is this not correct? Does controller 
message also mean program change message, of which the fcb1010 can send 5?
Also, I just don't understand how the global edit mode affects the preset 
edit mode- do you have to specify what kind of midi function you want to 
assign to each pedal in the global edit mode separetly for each pedal? The 
damn manual is even worse than a roland manual, minus the strange syntax.
One last question- is there a painless and not too time consuming way to 
suggest how i might go about programming the fcb1010 to access as much of 
the repeaters front panel as possible, send a program change and 
controller messages to an aleises midiverb (for changing vocal presets and 
controlling the amount of delay for vocals in real-time) and a program 
change and gain boost message (for loud sections of any particular song), 
a pod, while having the repeater and a filter factory and mo-fx 
to a roland 880 hard disk recorder without the mo-fx and filter factory 
recieving any kind of midi messages aside from being midi synced? (take 
I know this is asking a lot, thanks,
