GDML/ROOT - how to delete geometries from a GDML?

I am attempting a few things involving a ready-made GDML file, I have a few questions:

Firstly, is it possible to convert the GDML into a .root file which could then be read by the TGeoManager->Import functionality? And secondly, can I remove geometries from the GDML once made and re-save the stripped geometry as a GDML? In this second question I am not wanting to just “turn off” visibility I would like the nodes to actually be deleted.

Thank you for any information.

Yes, you can alter the gdml file if you know what you are doing (changes need to be consistent) - the parser will generally tell you if you do mistakes.
