Pretty much.

Right.

Depending on how I was feeling at the time, I might allow "Enchant Silver" to be used as "Imbue Silver with Magical Effect", though I notice that the Iginew Redhands subcult of Humakt (Storm Tribe has "Imbue sword with Magic" alongside "Enchant Bronze", "Iron" & "Silver" feats. So I might not.
