Can a custom tune also eliminate skip shift and the top speed limiter?

I am planning to get a custom tune to make the most of the mods I have made. I would also like to eliminate skip shift and the top speed limiter. Can this all be done by a tune?

It's currently at 155. I want to raise it higher than 159.

I would get the skip shift part by pass part. They are like 20 bucks. No tuning and you can take it off when you go to dealer. I dont think skip shift is that bad I have maybe seen it once in my car. You have to go at such low RPM to get to go, i dont rod on mine very often either
