I would like the option to display artist: instrument instead of artist (instrument).

The most obvious and already available option to do that is by means of constructing and using a virtual tag.
So I am not supporting this as a wish, as it would be complicating things for the developer and/or other users.

If you think it can be done in virtual tags, please construct the formula.
James Hetfield (lead vocals, rhythm guitar)
Kirk Hammett (lead guitar, backing vocals)
Robert Trujillo (bass, backing vocals)
Lars Ulrich (drums)
desired format
James Hetfield: lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Kirk Hammett: lead guitar, backing vocals
Robert Trujillo: bass, backing vocals
Lars Ulrich:  drums

Try this:
$RxReplace(<Artists: Performer>,"(.*?)\s\((.*?)\)","$1: $2")
The source code to any of my contributions is available on the same download link as the add-ons
