Semi-aleatoric notation

Is there a way to accomplish semi-aleatoric notation using musescore such as Chain 3 by Lutoslawski?

I think everything in that picture would be possible, for instance, using staff type changes to switch between 1 & 5 lines, the Inspector and/or noteheads palette to customize those, etc. Is there a specific aspect of this you are especially struggling with?

Sorry, I'm not sure where in that picture are these "blocks" and "arrows" you are referring to. Maybe post another image focusing on just those two specific symbols?

If they are at all common in notated music, they should be part of the SMuFL standard supported by MuseScore and thus will be present in the Symbols palette (press "Z" to display). If they are not there, then the SMuFL standards folks don't know about them, and you'd have to petition them to get these symbols added. And meanwhile, add them as graphics.
