"She is poor but honest."

Translation:Cô ấy nghèo mà trung thực.

does sticking a "la" or "thi" in here make it wrong?

You can insert thì but not là before nghèo as it's an adjective. You can additionally add "lại" before trung thữc.

Can you say "nhưng" here?

Apparently 'nhưng' works.

How about 'vậy mà', which we were told earlier was 'but'? It seems to reject 'vậy mà'.
