comment Is there a consumer-level handheld GPS that can use standard GIS data as its background layer?
Agreed; if you can figure out the battery concern, that tethering a 'real' GPS to a smartphone is likely the best option.

comment Show the paths but not roadsides and driveways in the line layer
Are there only paths in the nature areas? If so, you could clip the line layer with the polygon woodland area layer.

comment Sextante plugin
Yes, it's a completely different animal. It lists all of the QGIS tools in it, but also includes GRASS, SAGA, and many other tools.

comment Split by attribute automatically on several layers in QGIS
Again, assuming I understand the question, I think my solution will work. Concatenate your country, nuts1, nuts2 and nuts3 fields into a new field (call it "Split" or whatever you want.) Use this new field to split on.

You can post it publically somewhere (dropbox?) and just link to it here.

comment Convert Graphics to Vector in QGIS
Do you have a sample of the data you could post? I suspect m.cogo can work with a bit of reformatting. Since the exact tool you want doesn't seem to exist, you may have to be a bit flexible in how you format your input data.

comment Convert Graphics to Vector in QGIS
I agree with @underdark that you may be better off generating a vector directly, rather than trying to convert from graphics. Have you taken a look at GRASS' m.cogo tool? You can run it from QGIS via processing. I suspect you could use it to generate a point at the appropriate bearing, then convert the points to lines.
