Yeah, some options seem to be device specific. I've got some of those as well. Usually this means the device doesn't support that.

@shub but wouldn't that also suppress notification volume? As far as I understand the question, OP only wants to turn vibration for notifications off, not volume.

Have you tried Tasker's Vibrate On Notify action? From the Tasker manual: Whether to vibrate with a system notification. I've not tried it, but it sounds fitting.

comment Is removing an app any different from disabling an app?
Yes. As I wrote, that's the partition available to all apps. Each app gets a directory assigned there on install (/data/data/<package_name>), where they can store their data in. For details, see Android Folder Hierarchy and Where Android apps store data?. Also, .apk files are installed on this partition, see Where in the file system are applications installed?

comment Can I update a file via email
Taking up Dan's suggestion: did you look into ownCloud? This would enable you to host the file(s) on your own server, or rent a space with your provider to run the service.

comment Bluetooth keyboard connection settings
I have not tested it, but Tasker should be able to help out here: it can act on "Bluetooth device ID:XYZ connected", and recently had the "select IME" functionality added. If Tasker cannot do so by itself, some addon like Secure Settings might enable that. Worth checking at least.
