It would be great to customize the links in the top menu navigation of categories.
It currently has to be either a static block in CMS or category, but it would be nice to be able to create a link to even an external page.

Try this and make sure your text string appears in your translate.csv

<li><a href="http://www.yoursite.com/" title="title goes here"><?php echo $this->__('Page name to be translated'?></a></li>

Can I have a separate navigation page for 3 pages?
I want to have on the home page only 3 links: Home, Store, Studio and have the category navigation only on the Store page.
Is that possible?

If you just want to add a custom link to the top menu, there’s a good tutorial for it over at MageGyver: Individual menu items in the main menu
The final working code is available on github, too wink
