You can solve the last 2 problems by working with csv (comma-separated-values) files. Just about any spreadsheet app (Excel, OpenOffice, Gnumeric) can edit them, and you can even edit them in a text editor if need be. As text, they'll diff easily, so you can merge, etc. in your VC of choice.

See this page for pictures of NASA ships doing the impossible: towing recovered solid rocket boosters back to Kennedy Space Center.
