Unhappy new partner appl.

I tried using the immiAccount. found it daunting. the first link opened the sponsor form. filled it till page 4. then was told my applicant was not identified. Turns out from the handbook we have to download ourselves that the partner appl must come first. Went there. that gave me a new TRN. after a couple of pages I read the handbook again and found if the applicant applies outside Australia, then (s)he has to be outside to get the visa not in Australia. So I tried to vary it by applying inside Australia. was locked out after 4 pages with spurious errors. The High Commission will not take calls but forces us to ring VFS. VFS staff told me to write to the immigration dept. The dept wrote me that they could not clarify this matter but asked me to contact vfs, read the site, or appoint an agent on top of the huge fees they now charge.
I rang VFS again and was told I could cancel my incorrect applications and start again. Or just apply for a health and character check, and then go overseas with my partner's visitor 3 month visa, then apply for a bridging visa in Australia, then wait for the temp visa which could take 6-12 months, and then wait for the permanent visa.
Is this correct? We are planning to go to Melbourne and start the application there so that my partner need not leave the country just to get the visa and come back again.
