Custom Conference Room

Hi, I have two issues going on

i) I want to create a conference room that calls an external number as soon as anyone joins the room,
if the external call fails, the user should be directed to another fixed conference room.

ii) I want another conference room that keeps playing a hold music,
stays on mute no matter how many people join the room and the music should keep playing.

For the first one I created a new conference room, and modified it's xml in dialplan manager but it doesn't seem to work, the new xml is:

<extension name="MagicRoom" continue="" uuid="my_uuid">    

<condition field="destination_number" expression="^999$">        

<!-- Initiate an external call through the gateway -->        
<action application="bridge" data="sofia/gateway/"/>        
<!-- Join the caller to the conference room -->        
<action application="conference" data="999@my_ip@default+flags{''}"/>    


<!-- Add a fallback condition -->    
<condition field="${hangup_cause}" expression="NORMAL_CLEARING">      
<!-- If the call wasn't answered, route to another fixed room -->       
 <action application="conference" data="1100@my_ip@default+flags{''}"/>    


For the second point I'm using some custom fs_cli codes that is not proper and efficient. I think there;s a better way to do this via XML.

Please help me out as I'm in urgent need of this for my company..
