No GMP client that I know of can do any of those things. From a
protocol point of view it might be possible to load an existing game
(the specification text seems to imply that it should be possible) but
I doubt it's doable in practice. GNU Go's GMP implementation
definitely wouldn't allow it. Switching colors or forcing moves is
impossible to do with GMP.

With GTP it's trivial to implement these things, but I don't know
whether anyone has done so already.
