Yes, but I would suggest that you go to your local library and look at recently published Genealogies by "established" publishers, like PPC or NEHGS, or journals, like The Genealogist, The American Genealogist, or the NEHGR - to get a feel for how the "pros" present their information.

If you want to see a great presentation that no software that I am aware of handles - then see the recent series on The Great Migration Begins and The Great Migration. In this presentation, citation text information is never presented with the citation, but in the sketches. The sketches have a standard outline format. Sources are described in a separate appendix (which is presented in the front of the book - describing the source, its nature, its limitations, etc, etc.). Sources are given an alphabetical code and presented in-line, or in the sketch right after the info is presented. And the appendices not only includes a name index, but a separate index for places.

You might find an example of that format somewhere on the internet (besides actually subscribing to the NEHGS.)
