Extracting Field Data from Nodes in Drupal 7

Will this nightmare ever end? Please, without referencing the field API which is simply of no help, can someone either provide the code or point to where I can find the simply written code for extracting the field data from a node_load(). I'm using DRUPAL 7.

This just can't be that hard, can it??????

$items=node_load(1);

Ok, I get that $items now contains a structure of arrays within arrays. But isn't there any existing code that simply allows me to for example:

$my_image=$item[field_image] ....or $my_image=$item->field_image or what??????

Sorting and Organizing Blog Entries from multiple users?

How do I create some sort of indexing/sorting/categorizing of the blogs? I've got everything else running well on my drupal site, and I've spent days searching for this but I think because its part of the core I haven't been able to find much info on it.

XML-style field occurrence and relations

Using the available D7 APIs and modules, how might one implement occurrence and relationship rules between fields, a 'la XML? I'm looking at migrating some Bricolage projects to Drupal, where the content is modeled after a subset of, and outputs to DocBook XML format.

Views, Taxonomy, Filtering

I need to build two menu-like Views for a site. I have a site with nodes structured as follows:

PageA

PageA1
PageA2

PageA11
PageA12
PageA13

PageA21
PageA22
PageA23

Does that make sense? The top node, PageA, has two children: PageA1 and PageA2. Each of those children nodes have three children: PageA11, PageA12, PageA13, etc. I have this structure reflected in both taxonomy tags and in the menu structure, if that helps.

I have each node tagged with the entire tree of terms. For instance, a second tier node will be tagged with 'PageA PageA1' and a third tier node will be tagged with 'PageA PageA1 PageA12'. I need to build two menus and I'm trying to use Views for this. One menu lists second tier nodes and the other menu lists third tier nodes. Oh, and I have tagged each node with additional tags 'second tier' and 'third tier'.

I have no trouble building the second tier menu. I filter for nodes with tags 'second tier' and 'PageA'. But when I make a View which filters for tags 'third tier' and 'PageA' I obviously end up with all six leaf or third level nodes. What I want instead is to show PageA11, PageA12 and PageA13 if I am viewing any of those nodes or node PageA1. And I want to show PageA21, PageA22 and PageA23 if I am viewing any of those nodes or node PageA2.
