The weekly water change routine is more of a recent trend in the hobby. The outdated method would be the topoff only and bi annual top to bottom cleaning routine.

The "livebearers like a little salt" thing is outdated, as is prophylactic salt use in general.

Before I ever got into fish, it was explained to me, that one's first fish were sacrificial, for cycling, and were not expected to survive the process. Don't know if that was a rule or not.

Not really. No fish does better in bowls. The ventilation system is very bad.
Also, betta's aren't necessarily loners.
