Earth + Wind = Scorch is quite simple. Scorch is the element of drought. See it as a very dry and hot current of wind. It has suction, flow and intangibility, but also dryness and heat.
I concur with your definition of Dark. I guess I'd say Fire is about consuming substances feeding on them. Lightning would be the counterpart, as it is also an energy. These are the only energy based elements, and it's probably why they were made into Dark, in addition to the Yang stuff xD.
I've looked up the relation of Lava and Rubber. There is a process of Vulcanization where you heat up the natural rubber polymers to fuse them with sulfur and other compounds normally found in lavas creating a more resistant and elastic rubber, with greater mechanical power. The problem is that rubber itself is an organic compound that comes from trees. I guess here it's recreated with Earth Chakra and then vulcanized by Fire chakra. Not unheard of in the creation of CE. But it's mostly about Vulcanized Rubber.
Same with Cement/Quicklime Congealing, it's about taking a product, calcium carbonate and uses heat to turn it into calcium oxide. This requires the presence of air through. It's a bit sketchy to recreate this with Lava, as no product other than the Heat is found at a normal lava. Lava here has taken a more global definition. In fact, Youton doesn't really mean Lava, but rather molten release, or fusing release, which explains all the variations. Read and look for "Youton". (Which would probably mean that one could try passing Steel as Lava release ... hint hint)
Wind+Earth+Fireust, I'm not sure either. I'd say it takes the consumption part of Fire and the density/weight manipulation of Earth, and the lightweight, intangibility of Wind to create a light/intangible element that's so dense that it consumes every matter. Lol. Yeah.
I'll look it up xD
