I am at work and too busy to pick the bones out of all your statements but I will say this....
Bremsstrahlung is a process which creates X-Rays NOT Gamma
The bremsstrahlung spectrum can extend up into the gamma-ray range. Indeed, in some of the biggest flares, the spectrum is seen to extend to energies in excess of 100 MeV.
The fraction of the electron energy converted into bremsstrahlung increases with increasing electron energy and is largest for absorbing materials of high atomic number. The bremsstrahlung energy spectrum is a continuum with photon energies extending as high as the initial electron energy
