Linking text frames could sure benefit from improvement in the area you mention.
Scribus 1.5 features allready some nice improvements regarding linked text frames
but not on these topics.

Other than  using the properties box, these properties or actions could be available
through the little box that appear on the bottom right corner of the frame,
or on the begining or end of the arrow.
