In short – how problematic can learners around here say it is to acquire proper stress in Turkish?

It looks like a curious way of saying "I request more information". Can you ask someone and let us know?
However, when we are talking about dark, sky, eye color, or a black dirt, we use more commonly "kara".
e.g. kara gözlü, kara kaşlı
hava karardı (here it is not the word "kara" but the verb originating from it:kararmak)
ellerin kara olmuş! ("your hands became black!" e.g. after a child played outside)

"Memnun oldum" is an established phrase to mean "nice to meet you". If you say "mutlu oldum", it wouldn't make immediate sense. However, you can perfectly build a full sentence: Tanıştığımız için mutluyum.
