Really? Other than that, I agree with everything you wrote above.

These are both separate historical accounts about a 'Philosopher’s stone' but the origins behind them are completely different.
Plus, Indy also goes after Nicolas Flamel's account of the stone in the French comic, "Indiana Jones et le Grimore Maudit". All 3 of the Philosopher's Stone stories were published within a few months of each other in 1995. Oh, the conundrum!

True and if anyone would know, it'd be you. However Lucas has said things here & there which indicate that they're not.
