Yes, you should write a customisation layer that changes what elements
get put on the front-page.

Yes.  Put the following in your customisation layer:

(define ($page-number-format$ #!optional (gi (gi)))

You may want to look whether the book-article stylesheet from
AlcoveBook meets part of your needs.  You'll see there an example of
titlepage customisation, in addition to a tuning of other aspects of
the stylesheet (including the $page-number-format$ stuff above).
