Making use of 'Comments' for more than the key

I know you can populate the 'Comments' field with the key.

I would much prefer to be able to append the Comments field with the Danceability and Mood, so that I can apply those to Smart Playlists within iTunes.

I know very little about coding, but I've accomplished things in the past adapting Javascript and such.

What I would like to know is:
a) Is it within the realms of possibility to create an plugin to append the comments field with Danceability and Mood?
b) Would this be simple enough to do for a non-coder?

    Hey Steven,

    a plugin that does what you want would be fairly simply for a coder—just adapt the plugin to your needs. Or, alternatively, use as a starting point.

    I'm afraid to say, that for a non-coder, this might turn out to be a pretty large project as there is definitely a learning curve. But do take a look at the code and see whether it makes sense to you!

    Thanks. I think I’m going to have to go down the route of editing the tags manually (and maybe hope that this is added as a feature in the future).

    Thank you again for the advice.
