Hard to understand..

Do you want to slide edge or edge loop, so it stays in the same plane as existing geometry?

SwiftEdgeLoop does that.

In regular LW people are usually using Extender Plus and Move tool.

I have plugin EasyMesh http://easymesh.trueart.pl
which is making this slightly faster. Just press right mouse button on edge and move mouse like here:

uhmm not sure if I follow you exactly what you need to do..
but try this..select edge, press e (for extender) press t for move..and use the topview to move the extended edge, just press e again and move..and again and again.

Thats it.

You could try out px_bezier Its free but you have to use 32 bit lightwave, but it should work under Lightwave 10 32 bit.

you can choose line mode or curve mode, and you can easy make straight curves or curved with snapping mode for precise action.

you can use it in polymode, use extrude or extend mode, or use the belt mode as shown in the attached image, if you set the bank angle to 90 degree, you get it to work as a wall.
