A quick summary of the above could be, "We don't know much about bodhisattvas here - they are not part of Theravada." If that's enough of an answer, fine.
Otherwise, you'll have to try somewhere else.
You say you have found Mahayana sites 'baffling' but Dhamma Wheel's Mahayana twin, Dharma Wheel (see link at bottom of this page), is every bit as easy to get around, and as full of friendly people, as this site. You might find better answers to most of your Mahayana/Vajrayana questions over there.
