Guidelines for piano composition and transcription?
I'm a classical guitar student but I always loved the piano. Though I never owned one, most of my musical ideas come to me as harmonies on the keyboard so I often have to translate that into something playable on the guitar or the way around (when I compose with music software).Which would be the main guidelines one should follow when 1. arranging piano music for the guitar 2. arranging guitar music for the piano

Good question but both are fine. Music is a language so we all default to the languge we are most comfortable with. Most people compose or hear with their main instrument, so for example it is normal for a piano player learning guitar to visualize the piano while learning guitar parts and vice versa.
