Do you want to change <tan/> to <tg/> ? Why would you like to do so?
It's probably the rendering engine that should be changed in order to
output 'tg' when it meets the <tan/> tag. If you want a tag called
<tg/> you want a different language that is not MathML, a bit like
changing <mi> to <im> as French mathematicians might want to do.
I am not advising against doing it, actually, and it would be quite
simple to write an XSLT transform to map your markup to MathML.

I am not sure that the first voice-browser that can read maths would
be based on Presentation MathML. If I were you I think I would go for
Content, as you can always translate it back to presentation.

HQ? Depends what you mean by HQ. There are W3C offices (i.e. contact
points) in Europe but not in Romania (want to start one?). The nearest
is in Hungary.
