Nice!  Is there a documentation that maps character codes to glyph

This is normal.  You can't do that with other typesetting systems
either.  You could define LilyPond macros to combine glyphs from
different fonts, though.

Yes.  However, I can imagine that a macro solution would be more
flexible, for example, to select a style X that combines Church
Slavonic font X with the Byzantine neumes.

Normally, you can center-align lyrics with the command

\override LyricText.self-alignment-X = #CENTER

Maybe this works for you, too.
