I'm not interested in midi. So \transpostion seems to be useless to me. The
manual just says nothing about it :-(

I agree that the manual should probably be more clear here. I have an example that I would be happy to add which clarifies one of your next questions.

As I've said before, please tell me exactly what section(s) should changed, and exactly what should be changed or added. I'll be happy to modify it accordingly. And give you
credit for those changes.

I don't understand everything that LilyPond does, and I prefer not to write docs for stuff I don't understand. If I don't get detailed instructions, I'll probably try to learn about this stuff in a few months and fix anything I had problems with. If you want it
fixed sooner than that, you'll need to give me detailed instructions.

In case you're curious, I'm a string player (cello and viola). If something normally happens in string music, you can assume I know how to do it in LilyPond. If it doesn't occur normally in string music (lyrics, transposition, chords, ancient notation, percussion notation, piano staff switches, tabs), then it's pretty safe to assume that you know more than me. In those cases, it's much better for you to write a revision or addition to the docs, instead of me trying to fumble around. I can fix grammar and spelling;
I can't explain something I don't understand.
