I hope you don't mind some small corrections: editors for
postscript do exist. You can even edit postscript files by hand,
if you know enough - but this operation is definitely NOT for the
faint-hearted. However, it's not surprising that a print house
wouldn't want to bother.

Also, many houses work from Acrobat files, for which some editing
tools are also available.

If you're sending a postscript file, any postscript printer
driver will do. However, Docutech houses encourage the use of the
standard drivers, probably because they know what quirks to
expect.
