separate child-documents?

you are welcome. 

So you basically want to write a new PDF document, which is called
"Appendix" and gets the labels/references from another documents.

I think this can actually be done with some heavy LaTeXing

However, I do not believe that a German University Server would ever
want for a few (10-20 for 800 pages with images) MB of PDF space.  

EVER :-)-O.

I would just add the appendix to the LyX, compile it to PDF and upload
the PDF. And, while doing this sort out the main file into Child
documents by Chapter, so (future) updates become easier.

Messing with the PDF would be the silliest thing I have ever heard of in
a LyX/LaTeX context.

greetings, el
