I guess the Lewis and Short convention is to indicate the short vowels, while the Elementary Lewis convention is to indicate the long vowels with macrons? Is that correct? Why would Lewis change conventions himself?

In my experience it is best to focus on one language until you are comfortable with all of the basic grammar/syntax and have a decent working vocabulary. Only then would I start on another language. Otherwise you will be slowed by 'interference' which is confusing grammar/syntax/vocab/pronunciation etc. from different languages.
