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

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.
