Yes, you can unlink specific prims from a 200 link set leaving the rest 
linked. Then it would be trivial to relink selecting the linkset first 
and the prims to go at the head 2nd. You can using edit linked parts 
select all prims to unlink and do this in one operation, its not 
possible to keep the selection on all (just) the newley unlinked prims 
so you still need to reselect these for the relink individually. What 
you can do to relink is select the remaining linked prims first, use the 
drag selector to select the rest and then just unselected and reselect 
the required root prim. WHat this will give you is the original linked 
prims, the newly selected prims in *some*order + one that you have set 
as the root.

Of cause this becomes less trivial the more prims you need to remove and 
of cause how easy it is to access the prims you wish to change a if they 
are very small prims they  could be hidden and difficult to click on to 
select.
