My use of org actually quite closely manages your paper based
approach.  I have 3 main org files that cover the tasks you have

1. todo.org which has all my todo items.  every now and again, I go
   through this list and schedule some of them.  I do put deadlines on
   items if they have hard deadlines (i.e. of the type that says "this
   *has* to be done by then or else...") but I do not create artificial

2. notes.org that is simple a collection of (a large number of)
   snippets, each in a single top level headline.  These are all tagged
   when created with as many tags per entry as I can think of at the
   time.  I can then usually find what I want very quickly through the
   tag search functionality in org-agenda (C-c a m TAG RET) with
   org-agenda bound to "C-c a".  But see below.

3. diary.org for appointments and meetings.  This is the file that sees
   the most activity but only because I seem to live in meetings these

The key with the first two is to not worry about how you structure
information.  If all else fails, you can use the full power of Emacs to
find things (occur; isearch-forward-regexp; etc.).
