You are mistaking. TWRP has a Advanced tab. I use it daily. The Advanced tab allows you to wipe the system, dalvik, cache, etc. Basic wipe does not wipe System.

Lack of support you are correct on.

Dude! There's no issue of Locked Bootloader here. This issue arises when you're installing a ROM. Most of the times you just need to delete boot.img from ROM.zip and it installs but still there are many ROMs that are specifically made for Unlocked Bootloaders. For this refer to your ROM maker's guide.

P.S.: In many ROMs' description there's written "UB" which means only Unlocked Bootlodaer and "LB" which means Locked Bootloader and sometimes both "LB" & "UB" which means that ROM is made for both Locked and Unlocked Bootloaders but each may have different installation method.
