What do you think the chances are that these simple arguments will prove the twin prime conjecture, while no mathematicians have found this simple proof in the last several hundreds of years?

This is a valid learning method  try to do something, see what's wrong, try to fix it, repeat. You need to get better at seeing what's wrong yourself. If you were hoping to learn why the twin prime conjecture is hard, you are probably done or nearly so. At least until you learn some tools about closeness of primes.
