    How much do you need to design yourself?

    You can design the individual components and systems as you have noted in your list.

    Starting by looking at existing design is a good place to start.

    Cranes and component have ratings. You can evaluate the individual components and system by looking at the specifications as supplied by the vendor / manufacturer. Then you can back engineer the analysis of the components.
