Hello everyone!
can anyone suggest a chess software that responds to my specific needs?
01. i wish to record my vast collection of books on chess (such as My 60 Memorable Games by Fischer), along with the annotations provided, study them at my pace, record my own observations, and save them in separate files
02. study opening-middle-endgame positions by setting up pieces at my will
can anyone help me?

Welcome to the forum!

Most chess software will allow you to do that. It is more usual to save games together in a single database, which can then be interrogated quickly and easily, but you can save each single game to a separate file if you prefer to do that.

I use the free program Chesscat extensively and find it does everything I need, but without the polish of paid software like Fritz, which might be worth investing in if you are as serious about your studies as you seem to be!

To save time inputting moves manually, you may be able to find ready-made databases of game collections from books available free in the internet.

This site has an extensive collection, for example. Some of the files already have annotations, but these can be removed easily so that you can write your own.

Good luck!
