If you have the large Merc control box you can swap that out for the Merc flush mount control and add the key start to the dash. Your 20 will look like this.

Yes, with an O/B you can have seperate ignition and trottle/shift controls. I think it's the same controls and cables for both an I/O or outboard. A Merc dealer will know and they can fix you up. I've looked at the aftermarket ones and was never all that impressed with the look they offer. The 20 pictured is an 88.

I have twin O/B's on mine.. the trim is just behind the wheel, shifters on the seat and a foot throttle.

Here's my setup with twin 250 Mercs, call Livorsi or e-mail. Call Trick marine or e-mail Livorsi, they will set you up with all the right stuff.
