When doing this specific macro photography I always set the f=8.o or 11.0, shutter speed to 1/125 & I always set the ISO to auto and always flash on.

Will I be able to at least put cam in M (full manual), fix f=8.0, 1/124, & have AUTO ISO with manual focus?

You need an adapter with electronic coupling to control the aperture and IS on EF lenses, not just AF (which is slow). I haven't tried a cheap adapter with a manual diaphragm so I don't know if that solves your problem. Setting an aperture on the cheap adapter, using M + fixed shutter speed + Auto ISO should work OK.
