Now I see.

Going through Apps & Features on my machine I see that VS 2013 and 2015 have it the way you want it.
They have in Uninstall registry key:


You can get the NoRemove=1 with ARPNOREMOVE=1.
For NoElevateOnModify, you may be able to do it with a custom action.
However, since VS 2013 and 2015 are bootstrappers rather than Windows Installer packages, this might not work.

 I guess you can give it a try though
