dCas9(D10A) and AncBE4max for Polynesian Albinism single nucleotide conversion

I'm working on a personal project to convert a Guanine into an Adenine in this specific albinism causing allele:;Term=4948

The mutation is at 2324 in the code.
My plan is to use a double nickase dCas9(D10A) to bring the AncBE4max to that site and convert the Guanine into Adenine while in-vivo.

I took inspiration from this article in particular:

And this one:

As well as this article:

I haven't yet built a plasmid from scratch and am trying to use GenSmart Design to do so, but am not yet able to figure out how to delete things from the prebuilt plasmid sections. I am hoping to get some aide into what programs I should be using to build my plasmid as well as any know-how into how this works and if it can work.

Using the sgrna design tools online with the basic PAM of NGG, I haven't been able to find sites close enough to the edit zone to seem viable. I am trying to keep it below a span of 40 nucleotides, but I also don't have a good idea of what I'm doing. Any help with explaining how I should be going about this would be wonderful.

Due to certain personal circumstances, I am unable to continue my education at university and am trying to find other ways to continue my education into this field. Any tips for that would also be greatly appreciated.
