How do I update or modify existing Volunteer Type and Status through import?

Am I able to update or modify existing Volunteer Type and Status through Import? Can they be deleted in Bulk using Global Delete or global Change?
These options in the volunteer module are unable to be deleted through import, or global delete. 

It is possible to delete a Volunteer type using Global Delete.
Go to Admin>Globally Change Records>Constituent>New Change
Include a query of record to change
Under Available Fields, scroll down to Volunteers>Volunteer Type and Select it.
Set the Operation to Delete
Choose the value to Delete using the drop down arrow
Click OK
Click Change Now

Deleting the Volunteer type will not delete the Status of that type in the process.

If you also want to Delete the Status, you will add this information to the same Global Change
Status: Replace X with <blank>

Global Change Volunteer Type

NOTE: The record may appear to be an exception in the Control Report (due to having multiple volunteer types or not removing the status with the Volunteer Type), but the Volunteer Type is removed from the Constituent record.
