 1)If you uncheck Options->Configure->Use Internal edit <or viewer>
    MC will use whatever editor or view that your system environment
    is set to. I've used vim this way for many years.
 2)You can launch pretty much anything from MC:
    Example: you have a file called chris_glur.pl that you want to edit
    with emacs =>
    a)at the MC command line type "emacs " ## without the quotes! 
     b)select chris_glur.pl in MC
     d)Optionally " &"
  3)Here's the working line from a very simple bash script named 'gvm
     vim -g -geom -0+0 -S $1
     Using 2) I can bring up an entire programming project
  4)Using mailcap or ~.mailcap, you can further customize lauching
     and number of system services,, media players, etc.

I even lauch Open Office from MC - it is my File Manager.

I don't believe that this is exactly what you are looking for but, I hope
that is something here for you.
