How to control marker points via midi ??

Hi eveybody,

I d like to know if its possible and how could I control/assign the following parameters from Cubase to a midi controller?

1 - I d like to control play and stop from the transport panel

2 - I d like to assign ach of the 16 marker points in the control panel into this same midi controller.

Are both possible ? How do I make it work ?
