Default Advice wanted on pipe music writing software

A piping friend has two books of tunes written and published by his late father. The books are long out of print and he would like to republish them.

Would any of the programs currently on the market permit us to scan in tunes from good-quality manuscript, edit them as necessary and use the finished file(s) to produce a new edition of the books?

Both Finale & Sibelius have modules that you can purchase to do this. There are also free options.

My understanding is they work reasonably well for printed sheet music, not at all well for handwritten music. In addition, I don't know how any of them cope with bagpipe music.
