1st advice: Don't try it.
Speaking as one who has had to rebuild systems many times after getting adventurous with my registry editing (but on my machines, not my customer's) you may well be able to do it, but your description alone sounds like a production business system, and you may be setting yourself up for a rebuild. Just use the tools provided (MS or 3rd Party).
I've certainly learned how to do some interesting things with the registry - I'm just not convinced that the knowledge was cost-effective.
