[CM] Synthesizing Midi

I'm still trying to find a way to synthesize midi, yes midi, not audio.
This means I want to go further in the ways of creating midi parts,
especially in creating combinations of melody and rhythm, also finding
new ways of creating variations of existing midi files. To reach this
goal I thought Pd, Common Music or both together should be helpful

Rhythm-Melody Combination

Let me try to describe what is the first step I want to try in combining
rhythmic midi files with melodic midi files.

I have two midi files. (e.g. both just one bar long, in 4/4 measure).

1: rhythm.mid ( with the following note lengths)
1/4 1/4 1/4 1/8 1/8. (all C notes) 

2: melody.mid (with the following notes)
1/4(Note C) 3/4(Note D) 
>From these midi files I should get with Pd or Common Music or Key Kit a
3: combi.mid
1/4(C) 1/4(D) 1/4(D) 1/8(D) 1/8(D) 
The same in words explained: The file melody.mid defines the note
pitches at a given time and rhythm.mid defines the note starting times,
the note durations and the note velocities.
(Sometimes) Long melody notes are converted (splitted) to many shorter
notes according to the rhythm.mid.

Any tips regarding reaching this goal with Pd or Common Music or Key Kit
are welcome.

Best greetings,
