The location coordinates of your feature are stored in a geometry/shape field in the attribute table, not a text readable field you can adjust. You can store the coordinates as attributes, but they won't actually control where the point is. There are a few ways to address this: First, you could just make a table/spreadsheet/csv of your coordinate pairs. ...

The coordinates in the attribute table are numeric values that are not linked with the geometry. If you want to create a large number of points with exact coordinates, I suggest that you create a table with those coordinates, then use create an XY table event that you can merge with your existing shapefile. If you need to move just a few points, then ...

You could automate this approach with Python using the Create Fishnet (Data Management) tool. You can extract all of the pieces of the puzzle to do this analysis with python and then simply plug the pieces into the fishnet function. You need to start by iterating over all of the section polygons. Otherwise, you will get one large fishnet covering the ...

Since you're not worried about simultaneous edits on features, I'd say that in theory you have nothing to worry about. The main danger w/ QGIS is that simultaneous editors can stomp on each other's edits without noticing ("last edit wins"). For data under active editing with multiple users you might want to at least keep track of history, which you can do ...

Here is a method using arcpy geometry objects. The script creates a rotated hull rectangle around each polygon, splits it into plots, and clips the plots to the original polygon. As Aaron mentions, you could likely achieve this with the fishnet tool, but I could not figure out how to (in Step #2) "use logic to find the ordinal coords" for rotated polygons. ...
