[Vincent Levalois] "Yeah I'm finding it impossible to do the simplest of things like crossfade two clip by dragging one over an other and boom, it's done in Vegas but in Premiere it's drag a transition over the edit point, etc. -- A major pain in the butt!"

Does any NLE do that? FCP doesn't. I don't think Avid does. Never heard of this feature quite honestly.

One word of advice. Premiere Pro is NOT Vegas. If you want to learn how Premiere Pro works, then keep going. If it's too tedious for you, then move on to another app. I had 11 years on FCP and then had to move to Premiere Pro CS6. CS6 was VERY clunky compared to FCP but we pushed through because the native workflow was so fast. Now CC is MUCH improved in efficiency over CS6 and we're moving all manner of broadcast, documentary and corporate work through the app. We work with the app the way it was designed.

So either adapt your workflow to Premiere Pro or go find another NLE that better suits your workflow. You'll drive yourself crazy if you keep comparing Vegas to Premiere.
