To answer (some of) your questions: yes, it is possible to customize the
completion, and the tw-latex.txt file is the right point to do that. But
right now it's not possible to change the shortcut key as it's
hard-wired in the source code (unless you want to customize and compile
TW yourself, of course).

There's also a short guide to code completion customization on the wiki:
If you need more help it would be good if you could post a specific
issue/some customization you tried that didn't work. That way we could
determine more easily what the problem is.
