I am trying to:
I'd like to set up a portfolio/showcase site that manages various content types which are highly related among themselves. (Nice to have: In the admin panel all content types and their taxanomies should be summarized in one main entry like a plugin. So it is way more suitable and saves space. Also an export option to PHP as code for a real plugin or functions.php)
Like in Jasper Galvins online portfolio built with Types and Views but my solution is a bit more complex.
These Custom Post Types and taxanomies will be used to manage this solution: projects, project parts, tasks, employment, employers, education, types of business, types of income, volunteer work, career levels hobbies, type of product, type of publication, type of record, type of school/education, references and contact details information. And that all relates to an interactive CV and vice versa.
Parent-child and bi-directional many-to-many relationships will be needed. It will be translated with WPML.

Examples of possible permalink structures (exerpt):
domain.com/portfolio/ - overview and featured entries
domain.com/portfolio/projects/ - project archive
domain.com/portfolio/projects/main-project-1/ - project detail page
domain.com/portfolio/projects/main-project-1/sub-project-2/ - project detail page
domain.com/portfolio/projects/main-project-1/sub-project-2/task-4/ - task details in this project
domain.com/portfolio/tasks/task-4/ - task details and overview related work, projects and/or skills
domain.com/portfolio/employer-3/department-4/ - list of related work, projects and/or used skills
domain.com/portfolio/skills/skill-5/task-4/ - description of "skill 5" in task 4

It has to be possible to create wildcard permalinks like /category/%tag-3%/entry-1/. This is really important. Skills is a typical example for wildcard page use so you don't have to create it by yourself. It will be created automaticly after setting a wildcard and content template. It makes it way easier to filter and arrange the content.

Looks like you need a custom solution built on top of Toolset family plugins, and you want features beyond the scope of plugins, such as custom URL handling/redirection. As well as, a tightly integrated dashboard.

I will suggest you to contact our Certified Partners at https://toolset.com/consultant/ for a custom solution. They can work closely with you and can help building your project.

Generally you can roam around Toolset User Guides at https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/ and can have a general to advanced understanding about the capabilities of these plugins.

However, as a recommendation and support forum policy, it will be great if you open separate thread(s) for each issue/help topic, so we can provide focused solutions.
