Custom Infotype with multiple long text fields



We have a need to create a custom Infotype (in PA or PD) that will contain more than one long-text area.

I've searched this forum and found that there are generally two approaches :

1. use the HR clusters for long-text and setting the ITXEX field in PA

2. using SAP standard text area (SO10) and functions such as READ_TEXT, SAVE_TEXT, etc.

The problem with (1) is that it can only store one long-text. We need to have many. Please correct me if we can hold more than one long text in the cluster...?

With regard to (2), I'm just not sure that this is the correct place to store the long text...?

If I was to adopt option (2), could I just use the key of PA9nnn (ie: PAKEY) as the key/TDNAME for STXH?

Are there any other methods to store long text?

As well, is it possible to create a custom Infotype in PD? Can we use PM01 to create PD infotypes?
