Chain saw questions

Haven't read the entire thread yet but..
No, there is no "master link" The tool should have a screw type punch to force out one of the rivets (if you are repairing a chain).
To make a new loop, you count off the number of drivers you need, get out a repair link pack (not sure what thr right name is) conatinaing one chain strap with two 'pegs' riveted in and one free side strap. Connect the chain, put in the rivet spinner and screw it down (twice). You're done.

Chain breakers are similar to the MC one but the rivets are upset with a tool that spins and compresses them. Smacking them is a bad idea because each rivet is also a bearing.

First things first. All chainsaw chains are not alike. The 'inside' of them is different for different brand chainsaws. Make sure it's the proper type chain.
