I want to be able to capture packets in a file, edit out certain packets and "replay" the traffic ie simulate as if the traffic was happening in reality - is this possible ?

Sure, use Wireshark to capture your traffic, mark the packets you don't want and save it with these packets suppressed. Then use tools like TCPreplay to playout the capture file.

And my 2 cents: do not reply captured traffic into a live production environment ;-)
