I realize your two questions below were not fully answered:

the best (and recommended way) is to create a new working directory where you
import the polynomial and already computed relations. Cf "Importing a
polynomial file" and "Importing relations" in scripts/cadofactor/README
(git version). Please tell us if this documentation is incomplete.

this is not possible currently. However with the following you can use (say)
3 threads to generate the free relations, which should speed things up:

$ cadofactor.py ... tasks.sieve.freerel.threads=3
