Let me respond inline.

   Understood, thank you for the response.    I will need to figure
out the intricacies associated with "running as many databases and
business[es] as [I would] like".   But with Enterprise, I can't do the
above without the additional fees associated with the user/licenses,
but I am curious about specific databases making use of the enterprise
modules/apps versus others only making use of the community edition.
Again, it will take some tinking to figure out those thresholds.

> RE enterprise, they have updated some subscription rates so you might find it more affordable.  I believe you will pay per "database and user" for Enterprise.  If you run One Database and have a small number of users and can afford the $40 or so per month license, then running Enterprise will allow you to install what you want rather than figuring out how to do what you want without the Enterprise package.

     I'm not worried about the $40 or so per month license, as long as
the modules/apps provide $40 worth of value to me.   I'm just not yet
sure of the value, again tinkering.

     Yes, I am aware.   It is a bit overwhelming when looking at all
of them for the first time.   I hope to be able to contribute back to
the community as I am in the benefiting stage of the interactions.
Give me a bit of time and I'll be happy to return the gesture.

Yes, I've looked through the above.  Again, quite overwhelming for
those without institutional knowledge that I will only gain by using
the platform.

 No doubt.   I'm sure I will figure out the differences between
modules and apps in due course.

> I would be happy to help give you a tour.  I am more of a "user" than a "programmer" but if I can do builds well, my goal is to use Odoo Community plus OCA apps.  I have purchased a few and there are some good ones, but the rigorous build control of OCA is better, in my opinion, than many of the commercial addons.

I would really appreciate a tour.   I can be found on LinkedIN, so
please reach out and we can talk there.  From what I have been able to
find, I can see the amount of work and positive vibes that have been
put out by the community and as I said above, I would really like to
be able to contribute back, when I am in a position to do so.   It's
amazing how far the community has been able to come and can only
imagine what others have developed.   I hope to be able to count
myself as one of the people who has been able to get the system into a
place that works for all of my use cases.   It's an incredible
platform for a wide range of use cases.
