I live in an apartment, so I can't really machine-felt things more than one round (it just gets too expensive too quickly) and I can't control the water height or any of those things.  Could I put things in the machine for one round and then finish them off by hand?

Of course you can.  Sometimes it takes more than one cycle to felt something properly anyway.  I've even re-felted things after they've dried.

Every day may not be a good day to die, but every day is a good day to eat pancakes.

You might also consider felting by hand anyway.  I live in an apt too and I just bought a bucket and plunger from Home Depot exclusively for felting.  Usually takes me about 15-20 minutes and once you recoup the cost of the plunger and bucket ($7 for me), its free!  Knitty had a great article about this too.
