If you want to do something like that....Figure It Out For Yourself!
I will give you a hint. Look at the man pages for xmodmap and xev. The
xmodmap man page give you an example about how to swap Caps Lock with
Left Control; you should be able to figire out the rest. Put it in a
shell script and run it from the program that starts up your X sessions
or by hand.
Note that the key to the left of the A key should be a Control Key, not
