You're continuing to conflate two issues - hardware mixing of multiple 
PCM streams (which some hardware supports but PA doesn't make use of) 
and having control over the levels of analog inputs that are mixed 
straight into the analog output stream. PA exposes some of these, but 
not all of them - however, you can still use an alternative mixer app if 
you want to configure this for your specific niche use case. When 
Lennart says "PulseAudio does not support hardware mixing" he is *not* 
talking about the case you're describing.
