It may not answer all your questions but I wanted to point out that
*py3status* [1] provides a *xrandr* *module* to handle your screen
layouts easily and automatically if you want (with click event support
to switch easily).

You can maybe take a look at the source code [2] to get inspiration for
your own or use it through py3status and contribute to it if you want ;)

DISCLAIMER : I created py3status, so ofc I'm biased but I sincerly think
that this module could help you one way or another

[2] xrandr module :

Have a nice day
