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

Is there any possibility to collectively add or edit several locations to the map. Of course I could add them seperately by hand, but for example for over 70 locations this is very time-consuming, especially when the information about the locations is largely identical.

In the JOSM editor, you can copy tags from one object to another, i.e. you can create the first object, copy it (into the clipboard), then draw the second object and apply the tags from the copied object. That should be relatively straightforward.

You cannot "blindly" import objects (i.e. without zooming the map to the every location and visually inspecting it) because that would run the risk of adding objects that are already there, or adding an object that conflicts with something else (e.g. adding a shop in the middle of a street, or a building in the middle of a lake).
