You could try v.edit, otherwise it will be hand-editing with a digitizer.
With topological vectors, snapping one set of polygons to another set
of polygons does not make sense, because there are no polygons in
topological vectors, only shared boundaries. That is probably the
reason why this functionality is not available in grass.

For contour lines, you would need to patch the vector with contour
lines with a vector created with v.in.region type=line, then break
lines at intersections, convert lines to boundaries, add centroids.
This assumes that not closed contour lines have endpoints exactly at
the extents of the vector, e.g. if the western edge of the contour
vector is 30 and there is an open contour line ending at say
29.99999999, this will not work. If the contour lines were produced
with r.contour, this should work.
