Assuming I can slow down the spindle speed and only doing thru-holes,
Which MACH3 or MACH4 G-CODE Can Cycle would be suitable for these do-it-all bits?

i think it depends on your Controller. i am using a CSMIO and there it is done with macro M84 in Mach3.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

M3 S1000                                  (spindle on with higher speed for the drilling)
G1 Z-5 F100                              (drill the hole)
