Can I have the TM, termbase, corpora and muses in the same folder as the project folder in MemoQ?

I'm going through the guide MemoQ 6 in quick steps now (I have MemoQ 2015 Translator Pro, but this seems to be the best guide even though it's outdated), and have some problems with the first step to setup the folder structure and make the initial settings correctly.

I've used SDL Trados Studio since version 2009 until the current version that was just released, version 2017, and it works very well with the folder structure I have for that CAT tool:

One folder structure for the files that are generated by SDL Trados Studio with a search path close to the root folder, and then another folder structure for the files I receive when accepting a project, which is dated and under heading folders such as year and customer's name.

The default folder structure for MemoQ seems to be separating the project from the TM, termbase, corpora and muses, but I'd like everything collected in the same folder (the project folder for the customer). How can I achieve this?

(By the way, what do they mean with muses and corpora?)

I have created this folder structure now for the MemoQ generated files:

D:\Data files\MemoQ 2015\ under which I have these folders on the same level:

Translation memories

The problem now for me seems that I cannot change names on others' server projects. And I will be working with mostly one client that always uses only MemoQ for server projects where I will have to connect to their server for each project. Will this ruin my above folder structure, or can I at least choose folder path until above local location "Projects" and everything from the server is put there?

Otherwise, what is the best way to handle server projects in terms of manageability and overview all the time of the files and documents?
