As for `help-char', one can test it like this:

    (setq help-char 46) ; was 8 which is C-h
    (setq help-form (message "help-form executed")) ; was nil

and then type a dot (.) - the number for the
dot char is 46, which can be confirmed with

Type a dot and you'll see "help-form executed"
executed on the screen. But then, of course,
C-h doesn't work anymore. C-h, or ^H, is 8.
Again use ascii,

    $ ascii '^H'

As for [f1], now the functions keys don't work
for me in the Linux VT (well, they could,
I think, with this method [1], but I don't want
them to as to use them would require moving the
hands from the beloved asdf and jkl; positions)
- but for an X instance of Emacs, it should
work inside, outside, and out of the box with
the familiar syntax:

    (global-set-key [f1] #'beginning-of-buffer)
