afaik, rhythmbox gets its data from musicbrainz which is a
coherent/consistent/user reviewed database. If your CD is badly
recognised I suggest you subscribe there and start editing.

not sure what you want exactly here but musicbrainz provide software
that can tag your music by some magic algorithm mix'n'match. I'm told it
works pretty well.

that can be changed in preferences.

I'm sure multiple library's would help here. In the meantime I guess
there is nothing much to do but to use an external ripper. Soundjuicer
which is the default gnome ripper does a good job when you're doing
things outside of rhythmbox.
