It's quite the opposite, actually.
"Tidak" is to negate nouns, while "bukan" is to negate everything else.
Example: Saya tidak mengerti. = I don't understand. Mereka tidak suka apel. = They don't like apples. Kami tidak tahu. = We don't know. Dia bukan seorang murid. = S/he is not a student. Itu bukan seekor kucing. = It is not a cat. Saya bukan orang Indonesia. = I am not Indonesian.
...etc. I hope this helps.
True. You should report that.
However, "they" or "mereka" is always plural in Indonesian.
