Hi UbaidUllah,

The Chief Editor you suggest operates much like the Editor role already does in OJS. To rename it, you can edit the locale files to change the language used.

Currently there is no specific place for the Author to suggest Reviewers, so without coding to add that feature, the easiest thing to do is to ask the author to use the "Notes to Editor" field (part of the submission process) to specify reviewers.

Section Editors can be assigned to the Review stage only. This will allow them to marshal the review process but not to perform the Editorial work, including posting the submission online. Assigning Section Editors to Review only would allow the Editor to make the final decision.
