The real "official" version is in completely different repository (may not even be SVN), so once in awhile I sync to that repository and copy the real "official" version to my copy of the "official" version in SVN. Then I can merge changes from my copy of the "official" version to the "local" modified version using SVN merge.

Is there some kind of SVN script for this kind of dir hierarchy copy which also adds/removes files to the changelist? Or is there some better way to do this?

You are describing what the Subversion Manual calls a "Vendor Branch."
See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.advanced.vendorbr.html

svn_load_dirs.pl is usually what's recommended to address this.
