Gmail labels question

Using the web version of Gmail, if I move an email to a left hand side label, it then removes the email from the inbox.  If I then go to that label, and then delete the label tag from the top of the email, the email disappears completely and the only way I can find it is by selecting "all mail".   So it is not in the inbox nor is it in the bin.  A little annoying.  My questions therefore:

1. Where is the email if I cannot see it in the bin after I remove the label?
2. Why does it not reappear in the inbox
3. Is it possible to drag an email to a label to apply the label tag to it without having to "move" it out of the inbox and without having to add a label to the email from the drop down list.  I would like to use a drag command.

all mail
2. Why does it not reappear in the inbox
You need to have at least one label if you want to see it in inbox

No.

Label is a filter concept, if you add a customised label, the label will be on a higher priority and you will not see the message in your inbox.
