But why isn't there an easier way to disable nouveau-module?

Why do we have to open the black-list file with the text editor like nano and blacklist it and sometimes still it isn't enough?

I don't understand what are you talking about. There is no need to do things you describe on Debian manually.

Installation of "nvidia-driver" package is very straight forward and it's dependencies takes care of nouveau blacklisting for you, among the other things.
