Custom cross-filtering and highlighting?

Hello, this is a simplified version of what I'm trying to do: I'm creating a report on a person, where all visuals are populated based on the name is selected from the main slicer, and from the report month slicer. However, editing the interactions doesn't give me what I'm looking for with the bottom 2 visuals.


For the the bottom left visual, I want it to be filtered for month (i.e. just show Nov 2022 data). But I also want it to filter for all members of Team A (since we've chosen John in the slicer, and he's on Team A), and I want it to highlight John among the other Team A members. Any advice on how to set this up?


For the bottom right visual, I want it to be filtered for name (i.e. show John only). But rather than showing a single data point for Nov 2022, I want the line graph to show the trend in John's points over the past 6 months, as of the selected month (i.e. Jun-Nov 2022, since Nov 2022 is selected from the slicer). Any advice on how to set this up?
