Like juzzby, I don't fully understand what it is you want. For your future reference, in newer questions you should include every little detail you can think of. If you get complaints that some info in extraneous, but all of what is needed is there, good.

Anyway, basically you want to use Tables to hold the player lists. Like so:

gameModes = {
    TDM = {};
    CTF = {};

You'll have to manually add players when they enter or leave the specific mode, but that's easily done using table.remove() and table.insert().

To access all players currently in a specific gameMode, use a loop like this:

for i, v in pairs(gameModes.TDM) do

The question is not quite clear to me, but I suppose you wish to manipulate the leaderboards?

This can be done by inserting a value inside the player called "leaderstats" any value you add to that will be added to your leaderboard.

You can also remove values from it, so I suppose you could remove / insert the correct values for each game mode then.

First, to do something like this, you would need to remove the player's leaderboard. This is the Wiki for CoreGui, I would recommend going through it.

Anyway, like I said, we will need to remove the leaderboard. That can be done with something such as (in a LocalScript):

for _,v in pairs(game.CoreGui:GetChildren()) do
    if string.lower(v.Name) == string.lower("leaderboard") then
        v:Destroy() --NEVER use Remove. (1)
        return end

After that, you SHOULD be able to disable the leaderboard, and be able to create your own leaderboard with GUIs.

NOTE: I will try to read up more on CoreGui, and see if there is another way.
