Reverting a "cvs import"

We have a product that is made up of a lot of third party open source 
modules (Apache, Perl, IMAP, etc.).  We want to upgrade to the latest 
version of these modules.  

Typically we would do this by importing the latest version of these 
modules into our repository.  However, I don't see this as a seamless 
process.  I expect to see some modules that are not as stable as 
others and will have to be reverted to an earlier version (but a later 
version than what was originally in CVS).  Is there a way to do this?  

Additionally, we have various customizations to the existing stuff on 
the trunk.  When I have done an import in the past, the imported stuff 
shows up on the trunk after the import.  This is not what I want since 
this is where we are getting the current product from.  Is there a way 
to import to a branch so the person doing the importing can import and 
check in modifications to this branch without affecting the trunk 
until the new stuff is ready to be merged?  I am not talking about 
vendor branches here (I don't think.)
