I'm sorry, but I still don't see what is your issue, exactly. Do you want to 
get rid of nm-applet for some reason? Why? Or do you just try to work around 
some problem you can't solve with the applet?

BTW, you can use static IP configuration with both system and user connections 
(provided by nm-applet). Just edit your connection via the connection editor 
and select 'Manual' method on 'IPv4 Settings' tab.
And you can have just one connection (config) for each interface (the 'Device 
MAC address' on 'Wireless' tab can be used to force that the connection is 
used just for the particular interface). 

As for the command line, both cnetworkmanager and nmcli (part of 
NetworkManager now and a replacement for cnetworkmanager) just activate a 
connection. They don't provide a means to create new connections (settings).

Using gconf-editor or gconftool-2 you can both create new and modify existing 
connections. For more info, you can see:

If I didn't answer your questions, please describe your problem or use case 
more precisely.
