Upload operations in particular are quite complex due to lots of dependencies in the data model, and most of data is currently part of some XML document. Also you want to avoid single object uploads as they're quite slow.

Ok, that would probably be out of scope for the main OSM site then. People tend to use Overpass API for those sort of things over here (see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Sparse_Editing) .
