No, not really.
The main thing I would suggest is to scan through the pages and see 
which ones are really needed. I would think that mostly those in Scribus 
Basics will be the ones you will actually need and use. Once you point 
your browser (outside of Scribus) to the correct directory, you should 
be able to open the various files in tabs to speed up the process.

Uh, yeah.

No. This is still a manual operation. So far has proven hard to 
implement, considering the frames environment of Scribus. If you are not 
making the border of the frame visible, the frame space is rather 
AFAIK, when you consider the variables of font size, linespacing, and so 
forth, Scribus doesn't really know how much space there is below several 
lines of text.
