comment Downloads folder contents disappear
But if your Downloads belongs to root instead of your normal user which you use for browsing then it won't be able to write that folder. This is by design. You should mount the folder as your normal user, or chown-ing as per the answer below could work too I guess.

AFAIK one instance of X server won't use more than one driver at once. You could try to either nest multiple instances of X (I'm not sure how to do that) or you could just set your GUI stuff to use the nVidia driver. The settings pertaining to that should be in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (if you post its contents I/we can also probably help you set it up).

I'm not really sure about that /boot/cmdline.txt. It doesn't even exist on my system. Also .txt seriously?

It is rather unclear what you are asking (besides the fact that your data is mounted by root, so naturally it belongs to root). Please reword your question so that it becomes possible to understand your issue.
