How to get an additional product attributes to an exsisting product with attributes

Point 1
I can’t get my head round this one.
I have uploaded some products using Attribute Set/default and then selected configurable products.
I then created my products and used the associated products section to make 3 additional related products (SM/M/L). This gives a dropdown on the products page to select (small, medium, large) shirts.
After doing this I realised that I also needed to add sleeve length (short/Long).
I cannot see any possible way to add an additional option once the products have been created.
Can this be done without having to delete all the products and starting again?

Point 2
When I upload a new product that hasn’t been added before through excel and give it a type of Configurable and the attribute_set to shirts, when I try and go into it from the admin it gets stuck and doesn’t allow me into the product.
Can I add new products and associated products using excel, i can’t figure this one out either.
