1) Sure is it possible, z-scoring is nothing else then subtracting the
mean and dividing by the standard deviation. The time-period from which
you obtain the mean and standard deviation depend on what you want and
how you define it.
2) Usually we do not use megrealign at all and assume that subjects are
approximately similarly seated in the helmet for computing the
grandaverage. MEG sensor-level analysis is not suited very well for
making spatial inferences anyway, I would advise to go to source space
for such a thing.
3) For neuromag data, you already have planar gradiometers, so you do
not need megplanar and combineplanar. We, on the other hand, only have
axial gradiometers with our CTF system, thus we need a planar
transformation to get a planar representation.
4) I cannot help with this one, sorry.
