Is the "tube" loaded with the Black Powder charge for the cannon,
is the cannon loaded with Black Powder then the tube is inserted
and fired like a projectile salute that then explodes some distance
I'm not getting the gist of your question.
If the tube contains the Black Powder charge for the cannon, is
the tube a hard tube or a soft tube? Is the tube consumed in
the process or does it survive the shot?

You're basically looking to make small insert shells. A gang press and shift plate for filling are what you need.

The usual way of measuring powder is with a small scoop, Try a homewares shop for a set of measuring spoons of 1/4 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. Guide the measured powder with a small funnel. If you need more then use a bigger scoop. Getting the design inc the fusing sorted and finding the right tubes and plugs may be limiting with the short time you have allowed yourself. Most times items want to be in a finished box for a week to let all the gums and glues fully harden. All my failures have been through rushed glue joints not reaching full strength before firing.
