Please refer to the tutorial, help manual or tutorial videos for more information on the relationship between index cards and text documents if this isn't clear, or feel free to ask for further clarification, of course.

(1) If typing into index cards was the same as typing into the text, there would be no place to enter synopses (or it would become much more complicated)...

All of this could be done within Scrivener itself if the ability to directly add text to the notecard's text document was available.

I underlined a sentence. You underlined a sentence. Both were done for emphasis, not to suggest anyone is stupid.
But you've provided no practical reason why what I suggested could not be done other than "that's not the reasoning behind the way things are currently done".
1. This is why I suggested that notecards could be divided into two sections: the top for the title and synopsis and the bottom for the text.

In the above suggestion using the Scrivener Scratch Pad, Scrivener can stay minimized during all that; no need to switch to it with each paste. That's true as long as the destination document already exists.
