RE: How to select layer (by clicking on canvas)
Edit>Preferences>Tools Options>Move tool and check "Set layer or path as active", then when you are in the Move tool, click on a layer also makes it active. Warning: it makes active the layer that the Move tool picks, and when you have partial transparencies this may not be the one you think.
