Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I want to create a relation for a river. The river consists of many ways. I do not want to download all these to JOSM by hand and create a relation by selecting all the ways. Is there a way to add certain ways to a relation without a visual editor? Even a better solution would be making a tag search become a relation somehow.

Yes, there is a web-based "raw editor" that lets you edit the XML directly. See the wiki article for details.

And for the second part of the question, you can find the wanted ways using a XAPI request, as for example the mapquest xapi service.
