I don't think it's a good idea to post screenshots and guides from other CAD projects. Nor do I think it's a good strategy to copy another CAD program's approach to a certain problem.
The current FC tool dialog has all of the functioning parameters for Path and then some. A simple static sketch for each type of tool would be convenient for identifying those parameters in cases where it might not be obvious.
GWizard is not a CAM tool; it is a milling strategy tool. Therefore items like stickout, shank diameter, and overall length are important for calculating how hard the tool can be pushed. However, unless and until FC adds a milling strategy tool for speeds and feeds those items have no value.
Fusion 360 is catering to the paying commercial crowd where automatic identification of tool purchasing needs might be important. I doubt that many FC users expect to use the Path workbench to drive their tool purchases.
Not trying to close the patent office, but this activity seems fairly low priority. On the other hand making those unused parameters work would be a great addition to FC.
Still, with FC being FOSS, have at it!
