Pretty easy -- you just need to have the Activity object allow parenting
(and more flexible resizing).  You may need the label to be movable instead
of determining the box size.

Also, I'd like these diagrams to be saved in a self-made XMI format...

That's just a question of writing an export filter.  Takes a little more
programming, but shouldn't be hard if you know your XMI.  Look to the xfig
export filter for a simple & up-to-date example.

Would this be possible/feasible to program in a relatively short time?

Should be.
