In additional to all the above, propane also requires a different air-to-fuel ratio than natural gas to burn properly.

With the wrong orifice you get incomplete combustion, the orange flames you see in the picture. This may soot up the bottom of your pots and pans and also releases a large amount of CO which is obviously not a good thing.

Propane has a much higher BTU per cubic foot of gas than natural gas, and runs at a different pressure. Consequently, the burner orifice (where the gas comes out and burns) is smaller for a propane burner than for a natural gas burner. If you take a stove that was designed for natural gas (i.e., a bigger burner orifice) and install it in a house that heats with propane, you will be cooking on great balls of fire. Gas stoves can be adapted back and forth between propane and natural gas by changing the burner orifices, but this one obviously was not.

I thought the hole was so that you didn't have to enter/exit.

I've seen ten of those, including the toilet notch in the door. Funny thing about the toilet notch was the door still would not close. The current tenant figured out it was a guy thing. You have to have to leave the seat up.

How do you enter/exit that bathroom much less actually USE it?

Open the door, stand on top of the toilet, close the door, jump off the toilet, do what you came in to do, reverse the process. Seems fairly self explanatory

I wish I would have gotten a picture of it, but when a friend of mine decided to reno his kitchen, what he found under the sink was a tangled mess of PEX and copper, and someone had used saddle valves on the PEX piping for the connections to the tap! As if that wasn't bad enough, the PEX under the saddle valves was squished almost flat. I'm still surprised at the fact that it did not leak.

Here are some new pictures of things that home inspectors found. I particularly liked the door cut out to clear the toilet on the last picture.
