Autofire per button

Back in the days I owned a Competition Pro Star.

This stick had a unique feature which came in very handy in some games.

It had 4 buttons, where button 1 and 3 would both trigger Action1 and button 2 and 4 would both trigger Action2. So why have 4 buttons?
Because with the autofire switch it was possible to activate it only for button 2 and 4.
So in a game like Turrican you would run around holding button 3 for autofire and when needed press button 1 for the directable energy beam.

The recreation from Speedlink sadly activates autofire for all 4 buttons. Also I didn't find a way to map the same action to 2 buttons.

To emulate that cool Competition Pro Star behaviour, it would a.1) be necessary to map 2 buttons to the same action and a.2) turn on autofire only for one of the two mappings or b) having a new action for example called "button_0_autofire" which does what the name implies.
