The ffmpeg command line tool is a transcoding utility that also
allows to remux streams, it was not made for what you need.
(It - very well - "records" things like rawvideo input from
devices and audio from different inputs, it is not a transport
stream editor though.)
You need a specific tool to handle transport streams: The
tool is a magnitude smaller (and simpler) than FFmpeg but
at the same time, it will suit you needs much better.
There used to by ProjectX, there were other tools iirc.
