What about adding an htaccess file in the folder for the other languages, just for the redirections for the files I want to move (and for future), ie small local rules just for that folder?
DO NOT use mod_rewrite in more than one location. (Either in two or more htaccess files, or in a <Files> envelope within the same htaccess.*) Yes, it can be done, but it creates vast new complications and you don't want to mess with it. Honest.
If all your language-specific pages have something distinctive in the URL, for example
then you can easily put that in your main htaccess.
