Can I update posts using the post_name (slug) instead of the ID, as I don't have a list of the ID's, but I do have the list of the slugs and the corresponding changes for each one?

$post = get_page_by_path( 'the_slug', OBJECT, 'post_type' ) ;
$id = $post->ID;

Then you an update post using this ID. Note: Untested, may contain syntax error.
