How do you add multiple files & folders from different sources to one project?

I installed the latest PhpStorm EAP to take a look at.

I'm trying to set up a project that contains four items:

1) A remote folder over SSH/SFTP
2) a File from DropBox
3) a local git checkout
4) a local file

I want to be able to save that project, and later reopen it so I have access to all those four things in it.

I was reading these 2 posts to try to put together how to do this

Remote Edit in PhpStorm 9 EAP

But i can't figure out how to add all those things to my one re-openable project.

How can build this project with those folders and files on PhpStorm?

You can add folders located outside of your project root to your project as additional content roots ('Add content root' in Settings/project/Directories), but you can't add individual files to it - they have to be copied to your project folder/content root to get them included. Neither you can add a folder available via FTP - you need to download it to your local disk and set up FTP deployment for your project (
