Pls Help Aussie and Crimp terminals, metric and AWG

Well I've waisted about 20 hours so far and can not find anything I'm looking for.
I have some major rewiring to do on our yacht and want to use adheasive shrink terminals particularly ring ones.
First off our wiring is metric here. Now I've found one company that sells metric rings and thier prices are near $4.00 ea. and selection is slim.
So can I use AWG crimps with metric wire?
Can I use a metric crimper with AWG terminals? Red with red dot etc?
Otherwise if I can use AWG Terminals with metric wires what goes with what?
What are the standard size rings that go with 15a screw in busses on breaker panels?

I hope this hasn't been covered I've been searching but couldn't find any answers.
Cheers

I would prefer to have wire, terminals, and crimper to be exactly matched, but you could mix & match as necessary, according to availability.
Wire size in mm2/AWG:
0.25 - 1.65 / 22-16 (Red)
1.04 - 2.63 /16-14 (Blue)
2.63 - 6.64 / 12-10 (Yellow)
