You can make up all of the rides if you want, and if you can make a form of a layout that would be great.
Any rides that you would change make notes on them. Tim: I think three water rides plus a geyser area might be too much water. Also... I forgot to say that this would be for shanghai disneyland, but don't feel constricted to land at all.

A Frontierland version of the Jungle Cruise!

Think about it! The wild west. Rattle snakes! Grizzly bears! Cougars! Wagon train guys chased up a totem pole by a bison! Justifiably angry native Americans.

And (of course) hippos.

Oh alright David, didn't realize it was for Shanghai Disneyland. Its prob a bit too much water, for a country that hits some pretty low temperatures in the winter months, meaning they would need to be shut down.

I don't remember the name of it, but there was supposed to be a ride using the same system as Pirates of the Caribbean built in Disneyland many years ago, a very ambitious ride that would have occupied much of the area occupied now by Critter Country. Ultimately I think it would be a great addition to ANY Frontierland. It sounded great!
Also, I would like to see more things to do on Tom Sawyer Island, turning it into a true playground area. It could have ziplines, rock climbing walls, and all the sort of activities one finds in the Boneyard area at Animal Kingdom, but with a frontier setting instead. Definitely more caves to explore!
And no Frontierland should be considered complete without the original Golden Horseshoe Revue. Find good performers who can follow in the footsteps of Wally Boag, and let them run with it.
A Wild West stunt show should be an absolute must-have. If Disney wants to make it kid-friendly, then give it a Woody's Round-Up theme or something, but there should definitely be more rootin' and tootin' in Disney's version of the wild west.

Randall, I think you're talking about Western River Expedition and the rest of Thunder Mesa. The ride would have been very similar to pirates except it would have a different story line and it would have a large drop at the end.

I think that they should add a water ride like the one in California Adventure and maybe a Wagon Based Thrill ride along with Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain and don't forget Pecos Bills.
