With regards to the term "flying saucer" being and error... well, maybe. One of our members created a thread proposing that the IDEA of "flying saucers" was established well before Kenneth Arnold's Sighting (just south of me near Mr. Ranier- I used to live in Eatonville, WA were I had my first "UFO" sightings but that's for another thread).
You can find the thread here: The IDEA of FLYING SAUCERS pre-1940s
As for the DYSON-SPHERE hypothesis, I suppose it might be possible. My personal opinion (worth about as much as a dust-bunny) is that Humans believe we are much more intelligent than we actually are. Sure, we've figured out a lot of stuff, but how many times do we discover that what we thought to be true was hogwash? We break stuff open only to find more stuff inside.

I think humans should do the same.
Build a Dyson Sphere around Old Sol,
Harvest all the NRG mankind would ever need for a million years
And shield enough of the sun's energy coming at the Earth to counteract Global Warming.
Kill two gigantic birds with one stone.
