Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I want to customize the map so that it will have only the basic layer of roads, and then I will add tags of my choice (haven't learned how to do it yet...)

is this possible?

To get a map without POIs you have some ready made solutions:

If these are not enough, you have to spend sometime to make your own stylesheet in mapnik, you can base it on the Toolserver stylesheet perhaps. There are webservices that let you render your own map look at tiledrawer.

It is certainly possible to render a customized map that shows only the roads that are in openstreetmap but not other features. I'm not sure what you mean by "add tags of my choice". Please edit your question to clarify that.
