Does the append tool work in the same manner as sdeimport -o update_else_insert?

No, it is slightly different. The 'sdeimport -o update_else_insert' command will look for features with the same key column and update these features with those from the SDE export file. If there are new features, it will also add them to the SDE feature class. Here is a description:
The update_else_insert operation allows you to either update or insert the records of the target. If the target key columns match the values of the sdeexport files, the records are updated. For those records of the export file for which a match is not found, the records are inserted into the target.
tool will append all features to the existing feature class, whether the features are duplicates or not. It will not update any existing feature.
You may want to look into database
. This allows you to synchronize edits from an SDE geodatabase to/from a File or Personal geodatabase.
