The only shell I am familiar with is Cygwin.  Wanted to be less invasive.
I do want to be able to suggest running scripts from a shell.  What is
FOSS and recommended for that?

This sounds like the minimal way -- instal mingw and msys:
"MSYS is a collection of GNU utilities such as bash, make, gawk
and grep to allow building of applications and programs which
depend on traditionally UNIX tools to be present. It is
intended to supplement MinGW and the deficiencies of the cmd shell."
