Currently you cannot CREATE new waypoints whilst flying; however, you
can change the position of waypoints and switch to different mission
blocks.  I've personally never missed the ability to create completely
new waypoints.

I believe your RC gear will work with paparazzi; although you will have
to do a very simple modification (solder a couple of wires).

The Tiny, TWOG & YAPA2 are very similiar; the TWOG just breaks the GPS
out onto a separate board and the YAPA has fullsize RC connectors and a
modem socket.  The Lisa/L is very powerful but may be unsuitable if you
are getting started and is difficult to get hold of.  

If you can hang on a little you might want to consider a Umarim:
it's the spiritual successor of the TWOG/Tiny line and includes an IMU &
altimeter.  However, I don't know if any paparazzi vendors are
manufacturing these yet, or if there is a time-line for that.

Therefore, I'd probably recommend a Tiny, TWOG or YAPA2 with one of the
IMUs from this page:
unless you can wait for a Umarim.
