Complementary Verb with a Direct Object

A complementary verb may have a direct object:

MISERIS AUXILIUM DARE DEBEMUS


When you have a complementary infinitive and you have a direct object
does the direct object always go with the complementary verb (DARE) automatically or is it possible for it to go with DEBEMUS?

Could somebody give an example if it does?



thanks.

dative with adjectives

When using such words as GRATUS (pleasing) you should be using the
dative. In the following sentence the following should be happening:

A victory pleasing to the Emperor

Victory = Nominative
Pleasing = Dative
Emperor = Dative

Both 'pleasing' and 'emperor' are in the dative. I think you always put
the adj and the noun in the dative. Is this correct?

If this is true then the following sentence:

LOCUS TEMPLO IDONEUS
A place suitable ...
