I wanted to delete a few of the default buildings from Ravenport and apply that to my existing savegame without losing any progress (custom plowed fields, chopped trees, purchased placeables, etc.).

I downloaded the GE, loaded the default Ravenport map, and deleted the objects that I wanted to be deleted, but now I am having trouble migrating those changes into my existing savegame.

The youtube tutorials I've watched all seem to be for creating a new map without editing an existing savegame, so I'm not sure if it is possible.

Thanks for your help.

If the items were inserted by the "defaultItems.xml" you can simply delete them from savegame "items.xml". But be careful! Some items are gameplay relevant.
For a new career you must also adapt the "defaultItems.xml" to your changes.
Anyway keep a backup for a possible necessary restore.
