SharePoint Designer and InfoPath are two different software applications.
Microsoft InfoPath is used designing, distributing, filling and submitting forms while SharePoint designer can be used for creating/modifying sites, workflows, pages, custom forms, etc.
You don't need SharePoint designer to create and publish InfoPath form to SharePoint List/...
You will need to do some code work for an event handler.
Here are examples for event handler
For email part, there is also no OOB approach to send email with your new form pdf as attachment. Add a link to the file in your context may avoid some trouble. Example here
Infopath has not really changed in years (I think what you had in office2013 is same in office2019 maybe apart from some sec updates that affect the whole office). MS wanted to kill many times but faced backslash from large enterprises that use it a lot. You should not face any issues.

If you are looking to get the content from the form submission you should be able to use the URL:
This will return it in XML, but you can also ...
I'm not sure if you are dependent on a combination of two drop-down list boxes but here's one way.
Create a small section called AlertSection and add your alert text and a button that is labeled "Close".
Create a section at the bottom of the form that is hidden with a format rule and call it HiddenSection.

Views in Infopath are not separate. View is only a way of showing underlying data. All data fields are available for functions in each view. So you can just set up value of Filed B in View B to Field A in view A if that is what you want.

In your second view, just look for the field in the data source task ...
