If you cast on a stitch in the middle of a row, you'll have a hole because that stitch won't be attached to anything.

Kfb doesn't leave much of a hole, but does leave a little bar across the second stitch.

M1's, especially on thin yarn are a pain. For a purl M1, I lift the yarn from back to front and purl into the little loop in front. I find that if I can't get it in, I will put my needle into the back and then bring the needle up over the left needle under the yarn if that makes any sense.
