Homemade dumplings advice

I want to make shrimp-scallop dumplings for the first time. How do these ingredients sound?

Shrimp, scallops, ginger, garlic, scallion, Thai chili, soy sauce, sesame oil, Shaoxing wine, sugar, touch of oyster sauce, salt+pepper.

Will shrimp and scallops go well in a dumpling or crowd each other's intricate flavors?
Should I stick with Shaoxing wine or use sake instead?
Is oyster sauce overpowering here? Omit?
Sugar or no sugar?
Add napa cabbage? Grated carrot? Garden peas?
Any other tips?
