How to coil split and coil tap humbuckers

With my current setup 2 volume pots, one tone pot and a 3 way switch can i split both humbuckers seperately and choose which coil i want to use of the humbucker and coil tap the chosen coil of the humbucker? I want the option to use either coil of the humbucker but do this seperate from one another meaning bridge humbucker i choose to use either coil and neck pickup be able to do the samething to basicaly have seperate controlls for each humbucker.
Can this be done if so what would i need to do this? E.g. Push/pull, mini toggle...
Is there a wiring diagram i could use

Thanks for reading

Re: Humbucker mod possibilities

If you go with Jimmy Page #2 Wiring it gives you pretty much everything...

2 independent coil splits, out of phase, and series... 24 or 25 different tones, depending on the schematic
