I don't know about the rest of the questions, but you can update a .dtb
with a program from the ports in devel/dtc.

pjp@polarstern$ more pkg/DESCR
The Device Tree Compiler (DTC) compiles device-tree descriptions for
booting PowerPC kernels on embedded systems without OpenFirmware.

Optional dependency: install the bash package if you wish to use dtdiff.

There is something similar in Linux.  Basically you would convert the .dtb
to a .dts, edit it and convert the .dts back to .dtb.

I hope that answers one question.
