b) osc build cannot be used to simulate BuildService builds: I would wish following option - When I'm in a package, the third argument with the specfile can be omitted and the build builds the package. Including following:

Support for building linked packages is planned but it still needs to be discussed where to patch the sources (either this happens in the buildservice or in build but not in osc). I don't know the current status of this discussion.
the backend source server can already merge the sources. However, it may make sense to do it in the cli in your case, because it would make it easier to create modified source links and to maintain the patches there ?
