Can you tell me what you mean here?  In the first paragraph you say that
you want to rename and in the second paragraph you say that the names
are not important to you.

What I proposed boils down to write (at least) two new macros: One which
sets up `help-mode' and one which does not.  The question (for me) is
whether the former should call the later and which hooks these should
run (if at all).  The `with-output-to-temp-buffer' macro would stay in
place until we can safely tell that it doesn't have any more callers.
