I've no experience with the actual question, but I'm curious why you'd want to replace the good merged audio with the (normally considered unusable) original audio?
A sound designer needs access to all tracks - boom, lavs, etc. - in
designing the sound for a picture, usually in ProTools. My sound recordist,
one of the go-to sound recordists in Midwest film, provided me with up to
six-tracks of recorded sound. What the Merge Clips function did was glue
them all together, without the ability to pull them apart in the OMF
export, which is standard for any export from editing platform to ProTools.
My sound designer called Adobe and confirmed that the Merge Clips function
is indeed intended for internal use, and was therefore useless for feature
post-sound. Therefore, I now need to replace the single-track Merged sound
with the original .wav files, which include all of the isolated tracks my
sound designer needs to create a great design.

I get it. I thought you were replacing the audio recorded on camera with one track of audio recorded separately. I've never heard of anyone using Merge for this purpose. (Maybe this is why. )
Good luck to you.
Generally speaking, though, Jim, in terms of opening a project on a
separate workstation, if I have all the same footage and files, and am on a
station with CS6 installed, I should be able to completely access the
project, yes? I'm aware this may be an obvious question.
Like I said, I've no experience doing that, but I see no reason it won't work, so long as you have everything you need on both systems (including plug-ins).

Should be alright. The issue will be whether there's any codecs or plugins that are mac or windows only. I think there's more codecs that are mac only, so you're more likely to get issues going from a mac than to a mac.
Great! Thank you!
