Changing Key functions In Windows

So what i want to do is change my key functions on my keyboard (example: rather than ctrl-c i want to use command-c "aka windows-c")but i dont want to change the command key to be ctrl but make it so windows recognizes it as copy when i push command-c also want to change other stuff like ctrl-alt-del and paste and closing windows

the reason i dont want to change command to ctrl is if im in an application that i need to control i want to be able to hit the actual ctrl key

i basicly want to make my windows feel a little more like macintosh not in the way of looks but function of keys

hope it makes sence and hope someone knows how to do it
Thanks Mr Puffin

I don't know for sure, but I will go with no.

If you know how to modify the KB so that the signal is sent as another ctrl..... Naw, it won't work.
