#' @title Insert par.vals to old ones with meeting requirements
#' @description Update the values of a given parameter setting with a new
#' parameter setting. Settings that do not meet the requirements anymore will be
#' deleted from the first given parameter setting. Default values of the Param
#' Set are respected to check if the new param settings meet the requirements.
#'
#' @template arg_parset
#' @param old.par.vals [list]\cr
#'   Param Values to be updated.
#' @param new.par.vals [list]\cr
#'   New Param Values to update the `old.par.vals`.
#' @param warn [logical]\cr
#'   Whether a warning should be shown, if a param setting from `old.par.vals`
#'   is dropped. Default is `FALSE`.
#' @return [`list`].
