Another think is about transposing. In the example I had before I have

I do not know transposing very well, so, is that just a wrong chord in
the original or is there any trick to get the c from the d:m? If I look
at the Circle of fifths, I just think, the first assumption is right.

Well, no amount of transposing will make a minor chord into a major. However, one is able to play minors against majors (and vice versa), but that technically changes the effective chord. For instance, an E minor played on top of a C major results in a C major seventh. This would be skin to saying an E minor with a C root.

Perhaps the original music wrote D minor but meant F major with a D root, which is really a D minor seventh. Transposing that chord a fifth results in a C major with an A root, or an A minor seventh. Is that what you are after?
