The Grey Knights are the muscle of the Inquisition while the Inquisitors serve as its brain--however misguided some of them may be some of the time.

Draigo wouldn't be taking orders from a mere human. He'd be, by sworn oath, obeying the direct commands of the Emperor Himself. Remember, the Inquisition serves as a conduit for Imperial authority.

Salute the uniform and not the man.

I think this whole issue depends on situation. I'm thinking of when a Astartes homeworld is under attack. The planetary defence force often are under astartes leadership and I don't think they would listen to a inqusitor to leave the planet. It may be down to individuals or regiments if they follow the inqusitor or refuse and stay to fight. I guess I think that it all comes down to which, inqusitor or astartes, the specific Guard army fears the most.

The Dark Angels only killed lone inquisitors without anyone watching. I doubt they'd want to do so out in the open.
Indeed they are desperate to keep those secret my guess if there secrets got out it would mean excommunicate traitoris for them and which means the entire imperium of man would be on there ass. The blood ravens are similar to dark angels in this respect or were.

As for astartes authority in there worlds yah the PDF there especially in the planets in ultramar would tell the inquisition to fuck off.

Yeah I have agreed for the most part about people's views on the development of the Inquisition. It seems definitely more complicated than it used to be. It seemed that pissing off the inquisition automatically made you extinct. But I think it has become more complicated than that, considering the Inquisition seems very fragmented and individuals of the Inquisition seem to hoard power over Adeptus Astartes and the Imperial Guard Regiments.

I think it provides more depth because its an incentive for the Inquisition to not label potential allies as heretics and lose power to potential rivals.

Being a Spacemarine/Grey Knight does not make you smarter than a human. If anything an Inquisitor would probably be smarter than the average SM simply because of how hard it is to become a member of the Inquisition and the fact that they do not have an eidetic memory.

If anything I would say being and becoming space marine Grand Master / Chapter Master is much harder than becoming a lord inquisitor. While an inquisitor of similar age to an average space marine would probably be smarter then one. There is a huge gap between your rank and file and leaders of humanities best and only. With space marines enhanced everything they are literally human v 3.0

Also never said the book was good, just gives interesting perspective on how DA do things.
