I have a few questions I want to ask

In researching an issue I’m having, I’ve read a couple of times that Cubase 7 does not support MIDI track -> software synth, only MIDI -> external synth. Can anyone confirm or deny?

The software allows a software synth to be selected, so it portends to support this capability. Certainly many of you use hardware or external synths so are not bothered by this problem. Since I do almost exclusively analog input, it is not worth it for me to purchase a MIDI device.
