1. how can the lumion landscape be manipulated beyond the original square of lumion terrain?
Right now it can't. In the future you will be able to generate larger terrains
2. can a portion of the manipulated lumion landscape be moved as is to another portion of the lumion landscape?
Not if its part of the landscape tile. You can however add custom landscape elements (Objects>Nature) that blend in very nicely with the landscape itself. You can also create your own landscape parts and add the landscape material to them. If you do this you can also paint your own models with the landscape material. This way you can create very detailed landscapes with great ease.
3. when importing a terrain map (.dds) how can this terrain map be placed/moved/rotated relative to the editable square of lumion landscape?
Current landscape size is 2km square. It's best to adept the same size ratio or something close to this to your .dds terrain map.
