In JOSM is there a way to create a node precisely at the midpoint (cross) of a way?

Click on, & Dragging the cross to create it means it's not exactly at the midpoint or that the original way is exactly straight.

Draw Nodes removes the crosses.

Just draw a new node (double-click) somewhere on the way then select the three nodes and press Shift+B. I think this is quicker than dragging the cross then re-aligning + distributing the nodes.

Typing E also selects adjacent nodes so if in [A]dd mode: double click on line, E, SHIFT+B.

You could drag the cross, then select the three nodes and use L to align them in a straight line and Shift-B to distribute them evenly. Not sure if there is a quicker way.
