Are there any general hints or ideas for this room?
I just can get the giant out of his box, and that's it.
:?

Well... This room is evil, and depends on the fact that brained giants in some ways becomes more stupid than unbrained giants.

Sort of, but you are not in a good position when the demo ends ;)

The brained giant is a mistery. In the formation illustrated below the giant does something quite odd.

I can't get it right back to where you say, the best I can do is get it one square diagonally away from that.

But what do I do next? I still can't either drive it through the gap from behind, or draw it through the gap from ahead of it, without it stepping on the pressure plates. Please explain how to do either?

One square away is fine.

After getting to that position:

From there the maneuvering isn't nearly as weird for the rest of the room.

Okay, thanks, I've now completed this room.

But when I go back to the "help for a room" page, this room does not appear on it, even though it's now completed, all I see is a blank space. How do I make it appear there?

The same is also true of the other Secret Rooms that I've managed to discover so far ("Giants" 2N 1W, and "The Complex" 2E). NONE of the secret rooms are appearing in the "help for a room" page.

I am playing the game on Steam by the way (and thus, it's technically considered a DLC for "Gunthro and the Epic Blunder"). In the hold drop-down, it's described as "Complex Complex (Updated!)" - and, along with "Beethro's Teacher (Updated!)", it says "This hold is not published on CaravelNet". What is the problem here and how can I correct this?

There is no way for you to correct it. It's an issue on the developer end, and unfortunately nobody with the ability to correct it has had the time up to now.
