I'm currently using ACLog with eQSL, and only needed to change two of the
"Other" fields, to do what I wanted. The ADIF export 'does the right thing'.
The eQSL 'one-shot' method does not pick up these two "Other" fields.
I changed "Other" to "Prop_Mode" and "Other2" to "QSO_Comment"...
In the Prop_Mode field I indicate "SAT",
and manually indicate which satellite and additional comment in the other.
I have not done LOTW, but if it wants ADIF, ACLog should work as above.

I would not have recognized you as KK0SD, but I do remember you as KA0YOS !!
We worked a time or two on RS10/11 when I was in Tennessee. I have your card...
   Did I ever send you one ?      73 for now   /;^)
