2 specialized tools are:

- poporg: edit the docstring at point in Org (works in emacs-lisp-mode
  and maybe others?)
- outorg: edit the subtree at point (or whole buffer) in Org (works in
  all major-modes, given original buffer is org-style-structured and has
  outshine activated)

Then there is polymode and linked-buffers, recently discussed on the ESS
mailing list. 

None of them seems to be a perfect fit for your needs though ...
