Separate Effects for 2p characters (requires code) - A Request for Sonic Adventure 2

Request Expired

This Request has passed its delivery deadline.

Something I crave since I started playing skin mods

Until then I thought that it was straight-up impossible to have, say, Sonic and Metal Sonic use their own effects each, since they have the same efftex.pak file
However, I was surprised to see that the person who made the excellent Shade the Echidna over Tikal mod made it possible that Tikal and Knuckles both use their proper effects.

Upon further examination, MainMemory confirmed on Discord that it is possible to make code so that all characters can have their own individual effects.
My request is a mod or just DLLs and a template (a copy of the "original" character's effects but changing it will only change one character and not both) that allows Metal Sonic and Tikal to use their own effects.
Also I haven't really searched but I think there's a similar issue between chao Walker and Tails as well as Dark Chao Walker and Eggman (I wasn't able to locate the texture of their missile things). 

That could really help people making skin mods without code knowledge to import models and effects without messing up other characters. 

Requirements

In order to receive the points bounty, you should fulfil the following requirements.

  1. Metal Sonic has separate effects from Sonic
  2. Tikal has separate effects from Knuckles
