Re. 1.:

Unfortunately, I do not really understand the problem. Can you post screenshots of your properties mapper configuration or upload your properties mapper configuration and your GraphML file here? (Please see How to upload files to yEd Q&A? for instructions on uploading files here.)


Re. 2.:

Unfortunately it is not possible to import nodes from a spreadsheet into swimlanes of a table node. It is also not possible to use propertiers mapper for this task. You will have to do this manually,
