As of v17, we've unified all imports (except photos, as you note, and timetables which are coming) under Admin > System Admin > Import From File. This is based on the import tools that @sandra built into her very handy Data Admin tool, which she put together for her own school's migration. This new functionality is far less fiddly than the old approach, is extensible, and supports the automatic creation of temporary files. A huge leap forward. Let us know how you get on with it.
PS, the photo import can save a lot of time!
Data Updater does indeed meet your requests, particularly as of v16, in which Sandra added a Data Updater dashboard, as well as some tools for redirecting parents to update at the start of the year.
Updates can be created by parents, and an admin is then notified so that they can vet the changes and then merge them into the relevant records.
Does this help, or do you require more detail?
In terms of address as a required field, can you tell me more, and perhaps provide a screenshot?
