From Dusa to Deus and Theos

About a dozen etymologies of Greek Theόs and Latin Deus (god) has come down to us from the Middle Ages. Both word are familiar (from Engl. theology and deity ). 
It was taken for granted that Theόs and Deus are different pronunciations of the same word.,(this idea proved to be wrong ) and the name of Lord has to do something with His greatness, omnipotence and so forth –a reasonable conjecture on the face of it . 
Some fruits of medieval scholarship lacked juice even in their prime, as when deus was derived form dans eternaum uitaim suis ( [ the one ] giving eternal life to his own ).Others were astute. For example, Theόs were compare with théo ( to move fast),thermόs (warm),and áithos (fire, flame),among others, and Latin homo (man ) was traced to humus (earth) . 
Today we believe that Theos and Deus meant “ spirit” and “shining ,glorious”, respectively trough the origin of Theόs has not been fully clarified .Our solution have the support of well tasted procedures; they are not fantasies,but our glosses do not differ in principle from “rushing”, “flaming”, “aerial”-1

This is quite interesting. 
Letter H 
in Macedonian has came from somewhere .Same letter was missing when our ancestors would write 
DuH Sveti or
Holly Spirit 
Question is what letter was in use ? 
Duh -Spirit -single 
DuHovi -Spirits-plural 
out of H we have 
Du'ovi -plural 

We could see similarity,when compared with word success Uspeh 
UspeH-success -single 
UspeSi -successes -pl. 
This H-S change added to word Spirit-DuH, case when H is missing giving us another word used today 
Du'ovi 
*DuSovi 
Dusi-souls 
And what is my point? 

From Macedonian Dusha -sing. 
Dusi-souls to Spirit i.e. Theόs -Deus 

Dusa 
Deusa 
Deus 
Theόs 

Concept of Ma+Ma+Ma 
Where 
Ma+Ma=Make + duMa 
Mama 
God + word 
God + Spirit 


So fare over here, one link is missing 
Out of h letter ,how it used to be properly historical spelling ?
Was it *Dus ?
Was it *Duz 
Was it something else ? 
Who and when adopted the h letter onto our speeches?
