Default Making Adults from Stem cells

I am pretending to make a Eukaryotic Cell from its molecular components so that I have a totipotent stem cell sent to life by ATP injection and action potential. I am right now researching both the proteins that the cell I am making will need and the numbers of all the types of cells in us. I am doing it organ by organ starting with the total cells and the blood.

Why am I doing this?

Well if I or someone in my family can do this for real than we could assemble adults from these stem cells after we have differentiated them into the hundreds of types including stem cells.

Now for that I not only need the ratios of type of cell to total cells but also type of cell to other types of cells.

It would be nice if you guys could give me websites that give me the following numbers:
Cardiomyocytes
Pacemaker cells(from SA node to Purkinje fibers)
Adipocytes(I mean really any muscle except smooth muscle has fat and that includes cardiac muscle) in the heart
Smooth muscle in the heart(The endocardium is made up of smooth muscle)
Endothielial cells in coronary arteries and veins
fibroblasts in the heart

I want it for human because the stem cell that all these are going to come from has human DNA and protein in it.

If you can't find exact numbers or a range can you give me the total cells in the heart(excluding blood cells) as well as like fractions of heart mass for certain cell types so that I can calculate the range of cell numbers given the mass is 250-350 grams in an average healthy adult heart(Mass can be higher and still healthy like it is in athletes but 1000g or 1 kg of your weight just being your heart means heart disease)?
