Subject: Spacebar Controlled Menus?

Is it possible to make a menu option whose command equivalent is the
spacebar, but the word "space" is actually listed in the menu? (Doesn't
much good to have a command key you can't see.)

By the same token, is there some way to insert the special character
equivalents of the arrowkeys into the menus, such that command+right,
example, triggers the menu?

The above is for Mac OSX.  Thanks for any suggestions.
