Hi and welcome!

The JOSM editor will let you selectively hide objects. That sounds
risky to me as you wouldn't want to edit an object that you have
> 2. I'm trying to create cycle routes in my area by editing the relevant 'relations'. However, when a cycle route passes for e.g. 100m along a main road I'm finding myself having to chop the main route up so that the 100m section can be added to the cycle route. Is that the right thing to do?
That is correct.
