Customizing Detail Titles?

My company is transistioning from Autocad to Solidworks and we are working on making Solidworks drawings match our existing drafting standards.


For the most part this has been reasonably straightforward, but I am stuck when it comes to customizing detail titles and callouts. As shown in the attached file, what I want to do is have a split circle on the detail callout, with the detail number in the top half and the sheet number in the bottom half (to keep track of details across sheets). I then want the detail title to have another split circle with the number and sheet, and then the ability to add a descriptive name to each detail.


I've also attached an example of the closest I've managed to get in Solidworks. I haven't found a way to get it to show what sheet the detail is on.


We would also like to be able to do a similar thing with section callouts and views.


I'd appreciate any hints as to whether this is at all possible, and if so, how to go about making the changes.
