The free version of EarthSculptor doesn't support height maps larger than 257x257 and there is no way to add object placement features. The SDK is undocumented but seems to be easy to used. I think I could write an export plugin but I'm not going to work for free!
A nice list of terrain tools can be found here: http://www.vterrain.org/Packages/Artificial/ although most of the editors are not free. If I come across a better solution I will post here.

ps. Would you mind posing some infos about the bbm format? (I know that it is a gz compressed file but what is the underlying format?) Maybe Blender can be used for object placement and lightmap baking...
