Try with function keyboard-translate.

You say you are newbie with Emacs. You might discover you need to change too 
many things. Just a couple of examples:
*  dabbrev-expand (M-/)
*  undo vs. negative-argument (C-_ vs. C--). Actually, undo is best located in 
C-/, but not in your layout.

I moved from the Spanish layout (similar to Italian) to a dual (switching) 
layout: US std. / US intl. w/ deadkeys (gives you all latin-1 characters). 
Now the slash is one easy hit away and so is the single quote mark. I'm not 
going back to Spanish layout even if I have to use a Spanish keyboard.
