is there a way to create a notebook that at least will be created inside a notebook which has my cursor on it or have me choose the location/tree/hierarchy to place it in?
Nope, but I think Laurent would accept a PR for that. I believe this came up at one point in the past and he wasn’t against it.
It shouldn’t be too hard to implement. When you right-click on a folder and the context menu comrs up, the id is already known. Therefore using that id as the parent id would just be a different call to the function that creates the notebook.
I looked through the issues in github and found these corresponding issues/features
Issue#1984: add context menu and menu item to create sub-notebook
closed - Issue#898 Add Subnotebook menu item

I left a comment under Issue#1984.

I am pretty new to Joplin (and love it already )
My thought about this topic:
When I added my first sub-notebook I went to the main notebook (focus on that one) and clicked on
Create notebook. My expectation was to have the new notebook inside my selected one. Unfortunately it was created in the root.
To create a new notebook inside the root the selection of
notebooks (the headline to fold an unfold the notebooks) should be possible.
Just the idea of a noncoding user
@navlar the issue was closed, because I have added the code to Joplin already. Thus it will be available in the next release.
