It should be fine to do it that way. But it should be fine also to
just commit the entire working copy. Subversion will only transmit
the actual differences to the server, so if those specific files are
the only ones that have been changed, then that's all that will be
sent to the server.

Of course, if you do have other unrelated changes in the working copy
that you don't want to commit at the same time, then your approach
may be better.

That should be easy, e.g.:

svn merge -c 123 http://svnserver/trunk@123 > merge.txt

svn merge -c 125 http://svnserver/trunk@125 >> merge.txt

svn merge -c 130 http://svnserver/trunk@130 >> merge.txt
