- Pressing same key again (e.g. help/F1/F2), should go back to menu

This is a good news to see such tools on Atari!
Maybe you should give it a name ^^

a) The menu should not mess with the database. That is up to the user. The goal is not to create a totally automanaging smartphone app but only a small helper. I can add an option to report files that are not existing so the user will get informed, e.q. not list the program while parsing the database.

That might be possible. I personally prefer an explicit key that cannot be pressed by accident.
