The Ohsawa pot lid is very loose fitting. I have used other pots with a loose fitting lid with no problems. The main advantage to the Ohsawa pot is that it has the built in rope handle for easy removal of the pot from the pressure cooker. Lorna Sass desribes a way of folding aluminum foil and using it as a handle to lower a pot into the pressure cooker. I really don't think that a lid is essential to keeping the inner pot from boiling over if you preheat the stuff in the inner pot. I have made a harness, if you will, by knotting some heavy cotton cord, not rope, and using that as a handle to lower a pot into the PC. Then draping the cord around a screw in the lid to maintain the cord on top of the inner pot. When using this it is essential to have a lid on the inner pot to prevent the cord from falling into the pot.

For removal you might try those silicon finger tip kind of gloves that I see at some of the stores.

You might scroll down to some of Guy's earlier posting about the whole issue of using an inner pot, they are very informative.
