Also, it is possible to define the spped parameters in the "Tool Editor" and to be imported these parameters into the corresponding "JobSetup/Tools" fields?
There are old discussions about that topic. Currently a Tool is just like the physical piece of metal with its flutes (and shape). Such tool can be used for different purposes. Depending on the material and other things such as roughing/finishing, coolant, etc. the same tool can be used with different feeds and speeds. So these parameters don't belong to the tool only to its usage, which is described in the tool controller.
However, the understandable wish to reuse a tool controller in different jobs, was heard by the gods of path and they sent out mlampert to give us the "Job template". You can save an existing job as template, and using the template on job creation the controllers will be restored.
So it can be sensible to have a PCB-template having small mills and drills, an aluminium setup, a balsa wood setup, etc. and they all can use the same tools while using different speeds and feeds.
