Hi Kevin,
this is just a partial reply.

import will start at the beginning. There's also the question of track
names. Imported MIDI will end up having the same tracknames.

BUT, you can import one song, copy it to other tracks, clear or remove
the imported tracks and probably import another one, moving them further
along and copying to the tracks created in the first step. So something
import "part1.mid"
tnew song1
tnew song2
ct trk01 # first track of the import
select 0 64 # select 64 bars
ct song1
# same for trk02 and song2
ct trk01
ct trk02
import "part2.mid" # import second part
ct trk01 # imported track
select 0 80 # select 80 bars
ct song1
g 64 # go to measure 64, first empty one
tpaste # insert the copied track
# same for trk02 and song2
Not sure whether this is the quickest way to do it, but it's possible.


Best wishes,
