Using your and Kevin's suggestions I was able to set up the Google
repositories. However, I am unable to use yum to install for the same
reasons as before.
If you omit "--noscripts" from:
'rpm -ivh --noscripts --excludepath /usr/bin
you'll get your repo file, but as I said before, google-earth.repo per
se doesn't guarantee that the whole thing work.
You can ask Google directly whether the repo is actually set, at all.

I did try out:
after installing yum-plugin-tsflags
man 5 yum.conf -tsflags "excludepath"
but nothing useful came of that (from what I can tell, this is just the
manpage of yum.conf?).
man 5 yum.conf - tsflags
OK, it means: read the yum.conf manual, and under the OPTIONS search for
the "tsflags" and find whether there is a flag "excludepath"
rpm -qi yum-plugin-tsflags
It means: what the 'yum-plugin-tsflags' provides you is translation from
the yum.conf style to the yum command line style, therefore read
'/usr/lib/yum-plugins/tsflags.py' for an example to do so.
