I wished I could have seen pics of the mosaic vein plants. However, I am sure that ALL of the symptoms are insect related and NOT a disease. Of the two diseases you mentioned, I don't think they exist in the US or if they do it is very rare and extremely unlikely to affect a home gardener. In the pics shown, that damage is caused by sucking insects, either thrips or whiteflies, probably those whiteflies. Spray with spinosad

When it come to a virus they are fairly uncommon. Most of the time what resembles a virus is usually weather related or nutritionally related with insect damage coming in at a distant 3rd place.
