I assume you are using aniblocks, if so you can only edit those with Animate2 which unfortunately you just missed on sale. long face
but you can create your own animations using powerpose and puppeteer, these you can save as pz2 files using the free Poser format exporter for Daz studio
don’t be put off by the name, pz2 files work in Daz studio too.
I will try to find some links later, on android now, not easy
someone else might post some first.

The OBJ file format does not support bone information, so the answer is that you cannot do it.

You could try DAE (Collada) or even FBX, I believe they will work for what you want to do.

yes and unfortunately I hardly use studio for animation, I mostly use Carrara and not really very good at or much into fight scenes.
Boring as it seems, my characters mostly dance.
there are some paired motions available for punch and recieve etc, all involve careful positioning and lots of scrolling along the timeline to check fir poke through between figures etc, no easy way.
In Poser there is a physics plugin that does ragdoll, nothing like that currently for studio.
I have Poser7 and it’s physics plugin but I myself only really can do spectacular falls and tumbles which I save as animated poses for Carrara and iClone mostly.
