Turn the stems horizontally

Good evening everyone, I simply ask this.
Is it possible to overturn the stems of the notes horizontally? To be clearer: FROM head to left and stem to right A stem to left and head to right. Of course, by changing the direction of the stems at will.
In the attached image, the 3 E (bass clef) should be turned to the left. Since this is a vocal line, which I would like to keep isolated in its own staff, I would not like to use the chord, which would solve the problem in an excellent way. Thanks.
Lorenzo

Not like that.
Notes with colored heads should have only one common stem. I insert the scan of the original score.
Thanks for your interest, Maurizio!
Good day.
Lorenzo

Like that? (your example is missing some context, e.g. the bass clef you mention is not visible)

This should do what you want, and is only two layered staves.

Edit: I was originally confused by @lawrroc's message, and now I have reread it, and understand that he wanted the parts to be on their own staves, not as a chord, which I have done. @hmmueller's solution is probably more appropriate after all.

I apologize if my request caused confusion and if it was not clearly worded. This is a 4-part song. In the original score, of which I am attaching three bars of the first and second verse, ALL the voices - in the bars shown there are 3 in the first verse and 4 in the second - are inserted in a single staff in the bass clef, as shown in the image (thanks HM of the report). I would like to create four separate staves, in which to insert the 3 or 4 voices and then reunite them in a single staff (layering?) But with the spelling of the original score. I hope I have not made any further confusion. Thanks to you.
PS: I highlighted the attached point in the previous message.

Isn't this (almost) exactly what H.M. did?
The only problem I see is if you try to play it: there must be a flat also for the D with the stem down.

A doubt: did you use F11 or print preview to check the result?
(Ovvero: non è che per caso non hai attivato la visualizzazione "layered"?)

You're right. It seems to me that the four-line view of my NWC file respects this suggestion. Can it be okay like this?

Yes!

... except that you have to set the stem lengths of the notes on the first staff to zero (Notes -> Properties -> Override Stem Length: 0). Then the overlayed staves should look as in the original, I'd hope.

Sure, these tips are fine. I changed the length of the tails so that only one appears with a single curl. Thanks. I will need your advice again!  ;D
