That /would/ have been the case, yes.  Not so now; Synaptic is no longer
available in testing.  You can, of course, d/l synaptic (the version
in sid is currently the same as the one that's been deleted from
testing) and install using dpkg.

If you're happy to use snapshot.debian, you can re-install Synaptic that
way.  Be sure to disable the relevant repo entry as soon as you've
performed the installation.

That I have no idea about.  Sorry.
