I'm kind of baffled by this whole thread. IMO, editing tracks in Google Earth or Google My Maps is pretty easy. Oh well, whatever works for you...

I got here late but was going to suggest TopoFusion. The satellite pictures (USGS Imagery option) are great for adjusting tracks to an existing trail on the ground; you can move and delete individual points easily, or draw a track on the picture.

Also, this is a great site with lots of useful track manipulation tools: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
