The simplest of key-switches has a terminal that receives power from the battery (usually a red wire).
Then it has terminals for ignition-on and starter-engage, and optionally one more terminal for accessories.
All the other terminals are either additional accessories, ganged with ignition-on or with accessories.
Now it is the simplest thing in the world to wire it as follows.
or as follows.
In case 1, you will have your own custom exclusive push button start button.
In case 2, you can have your an additional custom push button start button, in addition to the spring-loaded key start.
Just do it yourself. It will be as reliable as the push button switch you use and the quality of wire-terminations in your workmanship.
The old CJ-2A Jeeps (split-windshield), used to have a foot operated starter switch, like the foot operated dipper switch.

Ram, in the above cases won't we be able to crank the car (though it won't start) even if the ignition is turned off! Can't we bifurcate a wire to the starter button from the ignition terminal? That way the sarter wouldn't work unless the ignition is also functional. Just a thought!
