Hazrat Adam (A.S)

I have a lot of problems understanding the story of Hazrat Adam, hopefully some of you can help resolve these problems.

First, lets just look at the chronology of events:

1. Hazrat Adam is created.
2. Allah swt declares he will place a Khalifa on Earth - the angels question Allah saying that blood will be shed on Earth.
3. The angels and Hazrat Adam are questioned about the names - Hazrat tells the names, the angels don't (This is all starting around Quran 2.30)
4. The angels are asked to do sajda to Hazrat Adam, Shaitan doesn't and is thrown out etc.
5. Hazrat Adam is now in Paradise - shaitan enters - misleads Hazrat Adam - he eats from the forbidden tree and is sent to Earth.

My primary questions circle around Paradise and Earth here. From the onset Allah swt declares he wants to place a khalifa on earth, but Hazrat Adam starts of in "Paradise". What is the reconciliation between these two seemingly conflicting issues?

Secondly, shaitan seems to have access to Paradise. What kind of Paradise has one single forbidden tree? Shaitan misleads Hazrat Adam with the promise of immortality - meaning Hazrat Adam knew he would die - how is it that in Paradise you can die?

One theory states that this Paradise, referred to as "Jannah" in the Quran, refers to a garden that was in fact on earth. When Hazrat Adam disobeyed, he was thrown out of the garden i.e he was never in Paradise. There are some holes in this argument. Considering that Prophets are infallible, Hazrat Adam was not a Prophet in Paradise, he only received Prohethood once he was on Earth. Also, I haven't found any supporting evidence from hadith to this theory, there might be some out there
