Interacting year with each predictor (and each category in case of the categorical vars.) will make the model quite complicated. Besides, I am not sure if I will be able to use the mlogview command in this case, which makes interpretation so much easier.

You are worried about wrong things. First you need to make sure you
have the right methodology. Then, once you have that straightened out,
you can start thinking about presenting it right. If you are willing
to sacrifice the methodology in favor of a user-written command to
produce a bunch of graphs for you (which takes 10-20 lines of code
that you can write yourself if needed), this looks like a poor choice
to me.

Uhm.... this far as to where? Interpretation of your model is up to
you, statalist cannot give you the answer on it.
