I agree with George - the easiest way to get what you want is to use a standard day to day QSO logger program. I use DXLab and it is very modular - you could just use the DXKeeper logger module. Especially if you want that ability to enter QSOs where you used different callsigns.
Years ago I wrote a very simple Microsoft Access database to store logged contacts before I went to DXLabs, it wasn't that hard to do - I modified someone else's Access Contact database by changing one field to be CALLSIGN and it did most of what you wanted. But I'm not a software hobbyist - much easier to for me use DXKeiper maintained by AA6YQ than playing around with database software every time I needed something.
There was a guy KC8YTO that had an free Access database logging program for free that others had used and modified. Not sure his stuff is still around but search on his call and  you'll find his YouTube videos.
