Copy or Move Automation from Base to Base?

I am building a somewhat advanced Base. Base functions “live” in Beta-mode. However, any tinkering with proposed changes is done on identical copy of this Base, the one in “Test Mode”.
Question 1: is there an easy way to move/copy an automation from Test to Live ? Currently we resort to copying Automations “by hand”.
Question 2: is there a way to convert a created Automation to Script? without writing out the script ?Then I would just copy/paste the script with minor edits

No.

Also no. Most if not all of an Automation can be accomplished as a script, but there is no “automation-to-script” conversion.
