SEPA Mandate for customer with externally specified Mandate ID

We are using SEPA Mandates for incoming payments from customers. Therefore we have created SEPA Mandates, with an internally number assignment.

When creating a SEPA Mandate from XD02 (Change customer, using create mandate button at Payment Transactions tab), the Mandate ID is not available for entering an own (external) value:

If have found out that a function module is available in transaction FI_APAR_SEPA_CUST, but it is possible to use this FM for external numbering?

Is it possible to make the field "ID of Mandate" in the screen above available for input, s the user is able to enter an own value?

If I use transaction FSEPA_M1 (Create mandate) I can Enter an "ID of Mandate". But this is not how our users create a mandate.

How can I customize that it is possible to enter an ID via XD02 as well?

I still have no idea if it is possible to customize the screen above, that allows the user to enter an own/external value in the field ID of Mandate.

We would like this, so we can ask for the customer to sign a mandate before we have the (bank)details available in SAP. As long as we don't have the bank details, we can't create a mandate in SAP. We would like to use an (external) automated process, which result in all the required data for registering a SEPA Mandate in SAP.

I hope someone can tell me if it is possible to make the ID of Mandate field editable if the screen is started from transaction XD01 of XD02.

Many thanks.

Normally, making a field as a mandatory or optional for a customer master, the control is in OBD2 which is based on Account Group or OB20 for transaction based like XD01 or FD01 etc., Not sure, whether you have checked this.
