There is clearly some corruption in your mscx file. I can reproduce the problem but I pass on the challenge to find out what really goes wrong.

I did however simply copy paste the complete score which revealed all the chord names. Find the result attached. Note: the mscz below might still have a corruption.

chords.xml is the only thing that works with bass letters uppercase and lowercase.
These chords do I need for my score in Griffschrift.
Is there any other chords that does this, or any other solution.

An example of bass line is B b b A b b B b b A b b C c c B c c C c c

Indeed, chords.xml is *not* meant to be used in the way you are, and it will definitely cause problems. If you want symbols to appear that look like chord symbols but aren't, probably the best thing is to add them as lyrics or staff text rather than chord symbols. But if you want them to transpose (it still isn't clear to me what you are trying to do; I've never seen notation anything like that before), then MuseScore 2.0 will allow for lower case minor chords, so typing "b" will cause MuseScore to think you are entering a B minor chord and will render it as "b". Again, I'm not sure if that is what you need or not.

A „Griffschrift“ sheet looks like normal notes. However these are not notes, this is a kind off tabulature, each note symbol corresponds to a certain button on the instrument, they do not show the real pitch, the show the key which should be pressed. This is recognizable by the fact that no clef sign is shown. However “x” is introduced in front of individual note symbols. The bass numbering looks like some type of accordion bass numbering, the letters A, a, B, b, C, a etc. do not represent real tones and/or chords, but similarly to what was said above, they correspond to the respective row for the fundamental bass keys, the small letter indicates chord bass keys. Capital letters mean fundamental bass keys.

The instrument produces different tones on push and on pull. This is indicated in the way that a long line under the notes is added. Passages with underline are played in push direction, passages without underline are played in pull direction.

There are different symbols in use on various types of “Griffschrift” but the differences are minor variations and can be easily recognised without extra explanation. Some use only the “x” instead of the note plus the “x” in front of the notes, plus the "x in a circle" in front of the notes for the fourth row.
