I'm curious to see if you guys think if my idea here will work. Is it possible to leave the tiller on my 10 and put the snow blade underneath it?. My plan was to use a chain to hold the tiller up in the back, and disconnect the lifting mechanism from it. Then just mount the blade on the underside of the tractor. Million dollar question is will this work?

With the tiller held in position and the lift linkage disconnected from it I would think it would work. As long as there is room on the back mounting point to fit it all. I don't have a tiller for my MF 12 so I can't be 100%.

You will definitely have to remove the drive shaft and gearbox. Not only for clearance and mechanism reasons, but so you don't get water in the gearbox. I would also devise a cup/cover/protector for the input shaft to the tiller.

The tillers driveshaft might hit the control handle bar that runs sideways to the side of the tractor. ???

If that is not a problem then yes it will work.

I would just remove the tiller, it's going to be impossible to steer, way too much weight on the rear. Hard on the tractor too. Take it off, run some wheel weights, load the rear tires.

The steering will be an issue when the blade is on the ground. Heck, it's an issue on every tractor I have :D
