1) The Data Management book is readily available on the SPSS Community site, which is not at all infernal. Just go to and look in the Books and Articles section. That isn't difficult.

2) There is a lot of material in the Help system about OMS - both in the Syntax Reference and in the help for the OMS Control Panel.

OMS allows you to direct output that would ordinarily appear in the output viewer to a file of some sort (e.g., to a data file, or text file, etc). IIRC, Raynald's book has a chapter on OMS. Unfortunately, the links to download it on Ray's site no longer work, and you end up on that infernal IBM site.
