A heavy muscle snatch would be a heavy single - with a 205 snatch, I'd expect about a 135 lb muscle snatch max, so you're pretty close there.

Clean start should be the same as the snatch, although you'll have a more upright back angle because of the narrower grip - but vertical arms.

Scap spine over bar is fine for DLing, but the snatch and clean are not DLs, and if you try to approach them as such, you're going to limit yourself.
