In my templates, how would I add specific page control by ID rather than URL? eg.
<% control Page(PageID) %>
<% control ChildrenOf(PageID) %>
On a couple of occasions a client will inadvertently break these links by changing the page title (and/or the meta title) - so controlling by URL is not always ideal.

You could write a function that does that for you quite easily.
Place this in your Page class:
return DataObject::get_by_id("SiteTree", (int)$id);
Then in your template you can access pages by id like this:
<% control PageById(1) %>$Title<% end_control %>

You can also just simply use the ID in place of the URLSegment,ie:
<% control childrenOf(20) %>
