Old Reb,

Check out ECI brakes at ecihotrodbrakes.com for more information than you can stand on the subject, but the short answer is you can use a manually adjustable proportioning valve with no ill effect...it's done all the time. ECI and many other vendors have these in stock for very reasonable prices.

As for the residual valves, you don't need residual valves unless the MC is mounted BELOW the level of the calipers or wheel cylinders. The purpose of a residual valve is to provide residual pressure on the line to prevent the brake line from losing prime.
