Excellent questions!

the answer is "Talk to the group who's champion you are." Many timnes they 
may say "that'd be great!" but you may also find that they have some thing 
planed and some one working on it.

As to heraldry displayed on a cloack... My dear bard you have opened up an 
entire 55 gal Drum of worms with out even knowing what it was. I will leave 
it as saying many different people will give you many different passionate 
answers to that question. if you would like I would be happy to assist with 
what heraldic knowledge I have on a provate channel.
