There is a file calles INIT.TXT in the directory of LCS. Open it with an editor, and change pagekeys = brackets to pagekeys = page or follow the intruction in that file, if something changed. Then, PAGE_UP/DOWN should work in place of [].

I am not sure, that you mean with #, but if the game tells you to "press" #, to view a liberal, you should instead press the number (1-6) of that member. If that dowsn't work, check, if NUMLOCK is on and CAPSLOCK is off, as LCS uses console input, instead of reading scancodes directly.

There is no way, to select a save, as the game has permadeath, and you can't play multiple games at once. It is however possilbe, to manually switch saves, by copying or renaming the the SAVE.DAT file.
If you really wan't to play several games interchangingly (or with multiple user accounts), you can write *.BAT files, to copy the right SAVE.DAT in, then start the game, and copy it out afterward.
