Basic MACD for NT7

Don't know how many of you have noticed this, but the MACD line in the MACD indicator that Ninja offers is not just the difference between the slow and fast EMAs. It is (I think) what is called the MACD histogram.

If what I am saying makes sense, would someone be willing to build a MACD for which the MACD line is composed only of the slow and fast EMAs, without it being 'smoothed' by the signal line.

So, what I am looking for is:
1) MACD line = difference between slow and fast EMAs,
2) A signal line which has a separate parameter, and does not 'smooth' the MACD line.
3)the ability to plot the MACD line as a histogram (though it would not be what is called "MACD Histogram"-see below) Plotted thusly, the histogram would cross the '0' line wherever the two EMAs cross.
4) of course, all EMAs would be user-definable.

Here is how Stockcharts.com defines these with standard parameters:

MACD: (12-day EMA - 26-day EMA)

Signal Line: 9-day EMA of MACD

MACD Histogram: MACD - Signal Line

Thanks for your help, if only to straighten out anything I've got wrong here.
