That's unfortunate.

Besides, the proline controllers were released in '83 or '84. If it were
possible to access the two buttons seperately on a VCS, someone would
probably have made use of it already.

Well, the proline controllers are hand-crampers, so it's not that much of a loss. The booster grip would be a better solution anyway.

Actually, I have a Wico Command and Control which has the trigger and the base fire button. If I could get that modified for booster grip, that would probably be the ideal sort of joystick for this kind of thing.
