Michael welcome. You need to find out what your soil is like firstly. It sounds like it is very shaded and poorly drained for moss to thrive. Planning a new lawn with what you have in mind means you have to create the conditions for the plants you wish to replace your lawn. Chamomile is often used as a substitute for grass, hard wearing and scented with nice white daisy like flowers. There is a non flowering variety which is normally used for lawns. If you go to the RHS website and search chamomile there is guidance there on growing one.
