I need to create a v4 RSA keypair that has a 16384 encryption key and a 4096 (possibly 8192) signing key using AES-256 that I can export to a text file.  Can you guys please provide some guidance on how to accomplish this?  Thanks

You'll have to patch the code.  GnuPG won't do this by itself.

What are you trying to accomplish?  Those keys are insanely large.
