It's not hopeless. You just need to find a Mac OS X editor which groks
TeX and makes use of that for code folding --- does VIM do this?
Failing that, doesn't OmniGraffle have a LaTeX export option?
Worst case: Write the text in OmniGraffle, use one of the equation
services to typeset small portions to see the equations &c. and then
dump to text and massage for final formatting in TeXshop.

No, just re-order things in the main file (and in the folder of aliases
if you're bothering with that). TeX the compleat text three times after
doing so to re-build all of the references.

\include always makes a new page --- I believe it should also only be
used at the top level to make LaTeX's management of the references
feasible. \input is a TeX primitive and should probably only be used
within a chapter file if using \include.
