This is what I was getting to in the context of Traditional Syro-Maronitism.

Namely as regards to what is a Traditional Maronite liturgy sans any, and all Latinizations like ? I've only come across one text by a Syriac fellow, which cites that the Maronites can draw from the Western Syriac Liturgy, as observed in Eastern Iraq (ie. Maronites do have an Orthodox counterpart, just not in the strictest sense.).

As to how likely it is for an individual with no cultural, or ethnic ties to the Levant, or surrounding regions to be received into a given community. One thing is to be a casual visitor who goes, and receives the Eucharist from time to time, another thing is to be a member of the parish. I'd rather go in with a heads up, whilst leaving room for error in terms of personal experience etc., than go in, and be disappointed. A few friends of mine have had that experience within Byzantine Churches (as has my mother (At least from her perspective. I offer that particular one up.)), and while I'm not saying that Latin Churches are ideal (Not by a long shot...), I more or less know what to expect depending where I go from experience.
