So, the pronouns as suffixes ("aku" as "-ku", "kamu" as "-mu", and "dia" as "-nya") can be used to indicate a direct object in addition to possession? If the suffix attaches to a noun, it shows possession ("kucingku" = "my cat"), but if it's attached to a verb, it shows a direct object ("dia melihatku" = "he/she looks at me"), right? Is this true for every verb that can take a direct object?

Yes, that is correct.

Yes, that is correct.
One small correction regarding your example:
"dia melihatku" = "he/she sees me" (melihat = to see)
"dia melihatkanku" = "he/she looks at me" (melihatkan = to look at)

Is this true for every verb that can take a direct object?

Yes.
- ku, -mu, -nya, can be suffixed to every verb that takes a direct object.

Why is "menggang saya" wrong?
