Reauthoring a DVD

I have a DVD containing some episodes of a TV show (not made by me). The DVD is no longer available from the TV company (or any other source), and I bought it as a part of a set of DVDs containing season 1-5 for this TV show (containing 8 DVDs).

The DVD is partly unreadable, but I'm able to read the starting menu (DVD menu) and the list of episodes. The content of the episodes is available on YouTube, but due to the length of the episodes each of them is divided into two parts.

Using OpenShot Video Editor I can put these two parts together, and export them as MPEG-2 files.
There would be a sound glitch for about less then 1 second when the two parts are joined together, but that's OK.

But the challenge is: Which programs can I use and how can I re-author the content of this DVD, using the original starting menu (DVD menu) and making jumps to each episode so that they are pointing to the MPEG-2 files I have created using OpenShot Video Editor ?

I'm based on open source software on Ubuntu Linux..  :-)
