In my experience of Morphic, I never tried to grok all methods a Morph 
implements. I explore what methods are used for a given functionality 
I'm interested into, and ignore the rest.

As for PasteUpMorph, one of its functions is to represent the World, so 
it is indeed very rich. I'm not sure it has to be the basis for a 
spreadsheet, maybe a simple morph will do. There are a zillion ways to 
do things in Morphic.

In my working image I have 235 living subinstances of PasteUpMorph. No 
efficiency problem at all.
