I don't like the behavior of the Tile behavior (slow animation and asks you to tile something to the other side). So, I followed Kewal's method but used the menu titles "Move Window to Left Side of Screen" and "Move Window to Right Side of Screen" (which are hidden menu options that just snap the window to either side, like in Windows/Mac + Better Snap ...

This involves "set variable to text" %Application%1%(front application name) and then using switch case based on the ...

This solution is a bit of a workaround, but I think that it should work for you. First, you can write some AppleScripts that will perform the actions Next, Prev., and Play/Pause.

Not all triggers can make an automation run in the background. When you Arrive, Leave, connect to CarPlay, or use the Before I Leave or Time of Day triggers, or try to automate connecting to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, your shortcuts will only show up as notifications and won't run in the background. These are the only triggers where a user may not be in control ...

There is no built-in way to use a keyboard shortcut to display or hide the accessibility keyboard. I'm understanding your question to only be about showing & hiding the accessibility keyboard with a keyboard shortcut and not about how to use that keyboard or any other accessibility feature.
