The first is "why did apple choose design implementation x? Although i Tunes lets you “manually manage your library”, it’s never intended to let you move things around in the filesystem, add, remove or modify files. You have two choices: a) Change your music player, b) adapt to the way it works. Yeah, if you come from the Winamp world, it’s a pain, but i Tunes, as bad as it is, does a decent job organizing the music and finding it real fast.

add folder to library and navigating to the folder where I store my music (it's a HUGE collection, so it's on its own hard drive) works okay, except for one problem: the i Tunes library still shows all entries for all the old files even though they don't exist.
As for adding and removing files, the best way to get around this is to not try to get around it in the first place.
Use the "Add to Library" and "Delete" functions in i Tunes itself.
