    You want a shell mill, but with serrations.
    I doubt you can find one. But you could make your own and harden it. As long as you have relief in the right areas it would work.

    I don't think you can switch offsets in the middle of a cut (never actually tried it).
    But I've had different offsets for each side of a grooving tool, that's normal.
