Sub workflows and extended properties on child jobs from parent

Hi There,
I'm using WFM 10 SP2 and have the following questions based on the fact that we want to do as much as possible through configuration rather than customisation.
We have a massive create job, design and build workflow which is one encompassing workflow with several sub processes within it.
1) I can't see how you can embed a workflow within another, so we are using child jobs to simulate that - is the correct way of doing this?
2) when creating a child job, I need to set certain properties based on values from the parent job - I can't see an easy way of doing that - I have found a execute SQL custom step - but I can't exec SQL against the prop tables as I need to be able to generate an OBJECTID. What's the best way to approach this?
