Right. You want to use the PageLines Customize plugin and create a language folder there via FTP. You can then apply your .po/.mo files there. That's the appropriate place for them.
No, you cannot use a language folder in the child theme. The PageLines Customize Plugin places no burden on resources. It will not cause any delays or reduce the speed of your site.
