I wish to do that, but it fails: I defined 

a new file format LyX (edit source)

a new converter  LyX - LyX (edit source) calling my text editor: xjed $$i

Now, FileExport LyX (edit source) opens up the text editor, but with a
temp-file in the lyx_tempdir and after saving the edited result and
closing, LyX says that there was an error converting my file.

It looks like I have to wait for 1.6.2 and the vc-something lfun.

I wish to do that, but it fails: I defined 

a new file format "LyX (edit source)"

a new converter  LyX -> LyX (edit source) calling my text editor: xjed $$i

Now, File>Export LyX (edit source) opens up the text editor, but with a
temp-file in the lyx_tempdir and after saving the edited result and

I'm not sure exactly what you want to do, but (a) you can of course do 
this outside LyX and (b) you can create some kind of export format and 
associated converter that will do with the file as you wish. Look at 
ToolsPreferencesFile Formats and TPConverters, and the associated 
documentation.

AFAIK, no. 

You will have to modify the source file by external means and then
FileRevert (ignoring the warnings).
