It's unclear from your question whether you have done the obvious so I will mention it just in case. When looking at a specific space, right click (option click) on the icon (in the dock) of the app you want to "pin" to the specific space . There will be two options shown that say something like "this space" or "any space" (I'm sorry, I'm not on my Mac so I ...

Here's something I tried (on 10.9.5). Unfortunately, it didn't work, but I'll note it here in case it inspires someone. I noticed that enabling System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Switch to Desktop 16 caused ~/Library/com.apple.symbolichotkeys.plist to update. I found some information (1) (2) about that plist.

It allows you to remap and assign hot keys to pretty much anything so in theory, you should be able to map the remaining keys to your spaces. It's free software ...

I've never found any way to get full-screen apps to go to the left. At least they don't drop randomly in the middle of other Desktops like they used to, so at least you now know where they're going to be. My workaround has been to use the default ctrl/number key commands in System Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control, as below, which in my case ...

I've just tested now and I'm able to do that (multiple full-screen applications and switching between them with Command + Tab), but it could very well be because I'm using TotalSpaces, an add-on that greatly improves the usability of spaces. Unfortunately it seems like 10.10 is the last release of Mac OS that TotalSpaces will support.
