Take a look at MAMECE-10X's screen centering bits. I've got it centering pretty consistantly.
There's also a bit in there to deal with the higher resolutions games by blitting every other pixel in every other row; makes the MCR1 games work.
Rotation is easy to do on a hard-wired per-driver basis (i.e. Track and Field in MAMECE-10X), and should be fairly easy to do on a user-selectable basis, though it may throw a kink into the centering code... depends on how it's done and how the core has changed recently.
As far as on-screen buttons, MAMECE-10X has the most basic variety: the whole screen is one big button. I never used it, and I hate playing games using a stylus, so I never developed it any further.
