I tried to create a new level head that would display both geodetic and datum elevations. I noticed however that even if you define new family parameters in a level family you can only link labels to the "Elevation" and "Name" parameters. I wanted to created two new parameters "Datum" and "Offset" where "Datum" is a function of Elevation minus Offset. Anyway I can do this? I noticed level heads can report "Project" or "Shared" elevations but I'm not sure how this works.

I thought i'd bring this to the top just in case you didn't know yet, but this is sort of possible. You wouldn't do it in one level though, it would need to done using two levels. As you mentioned levels can show elevation via shared or project values. If you relocate your project in elevation by going to settings relocate and move the project to the appropriate civil levels you'll notice your levels will remain as they were. If you then create another level style and set it to show shared co-ordinates it will show you civil levels. As for reporting them both at the same time i guess you could place levels over the top of each other to show both values (making sure make plan view is unticked). Only problem i can foresee is when placing walls etc you will end up with multiple/excess levels to select from... Personally i wouldn't do it, but you could easily switch between them as required.
