This should not be an issue.  You can drag and drop a repeating section or table into another repeating section.

The trick is setting up filter or hiding the rows that are not relevant.

So once you drop in your secondary repeating table add conditional formatting where if repating row ID does not match cooresponding ID in the parent hide the row.
That way to the user they see only the repeating history which is relevant (match) for each of the problem records.
