Right especially this font is very easily scalable so I can adapt it
either to my small Laptop screen or to a bigger Desktop one.

Here are two snapshots attached below

Can you give me an example. I have never seen such settings would be

Now I don't understand you. If I use (set-input-method "TeX")  (or
something like this)
typing \alpha results in α but the same happens in a LaTeX buffer with
x-symbol-mode (-minor) turned on. In this sense X-symbol provides a
input method (otherwise it would be very clumsy to use), or what do I miss?
