seems to be there are some curve tools missing or i couldnt find them .... being a spline modeller these would really help :
Add point tool
Curve split tool
and yes ... is there anything equivalne to merge points in lightwave ?

LW weld points is Modo/Vertext/Join or Join Averaged

Oops! I mean there is a merge points in Modo under the Vertex tab.
And what can be quite cool is you can drag right in the 3d view to control the merge distance.

yes ... but LW also have the auto merge tool as well which automatically merges overlapping points .. really comes in handy ..

That's just the same as doing a merge with zero distance.
And if you really want, you can record that as a macro and set up your own tool with just that setting.
Add point tool
When your curve tool is active select the point before the one you want to add and then click somehwere you want a new point.
ascii art to follow
select point 3 and then click somewhere it will add another point (4 below)

As long as the curve tool is still active this works. If you try to reselect a curve and try this modo goes nuts.

I also cannot find any tool to add a point in curve.
