Is it possible to change skills or create new Skills/Traits by editing Skills_Settings.xml? For example -- Removing throwing bonuses from Demolitions and putting them into the Throwing, or making a hybrid Skill/Trait by combining elements of other Traits/Skills. Can tags from Backgrounds.xml be used in Skills_Setting.xml to create new Skills/Traits?

Short answer: no, not without further coding. You can of course remove boni from a trait by setting it to 0.

But you can't switch bonuses between skills? (just to be clear, 'cause I asked a couple questions but only got one "no" happy )

That "no" applies to all of your questions. The skill traits are hardcoded. You can only modify existing values but nothing more without code work.
