hm ... in the inscription the title "Vicecomes" seem to relate to Sforza's position in the Marches and the title "Comes" to Cremona.

I would think, that Sforza had been "Vicecomes" in his relation to the pope (cause he got some arrangement with him in peaceful times), and "Comes" in relation to Visconti ... but that's quite in contradiction to your explanation.

It's not, that I understand these titles completely.
