I am developing a Java GUI with the Netbeans Form Editor. Frankly, is seems unneccarily difficult. Does Eclipse provide a GUI editor that is easier to use?

Actually, I think the NetBeans editor is much, much superior than the Eclipse one.

If you want to try it, it is called Visual Editor. You can download it in the Eclipse Project website.
