Can I customize characters map ?

I am trying to customize special characters map and make a list of favorites to use (just like mac characters viewer). Is this possible ? it is a pain to keep scrolling through the characters when I have to use them constantly in different applications (word, excel, indesign, etc. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you stalker, this is very helpful. However, I still do not know how to group all my favorite special characters (30+) under one category so that i only see them and not all the other special characters. thanks
