Maybe you can use org-element-at-point and advice org-return?

I don't understand this.  Do you know M-{left,right}?  Again, you could
advice org-return.

In LO it removes the bullet.  Here you can use C-S-Backspace.  Bonus: it
works everywhere!

This is like C-S-Backspace C-p C-e.  You could advice org-delete-backward.

It should be trivial to support using org-element-at-point.

No.  And I doubt it should be.  But Emacs is /your/ extensible editor.
