12. I don't think that's the case

Section 1 of Article II provides that the acting president shall serve until the next election. The 25th Amendment provisions for the nomination and confirmation of a vice president doesn't change that, so an acting president will remain in the position even after a new vice president is sworn in.

Only a vice president filling a vacancy left by the death, resignation, removal or disability of the president would become president, not acting president. But otherwise, an acting president continues as acting president until the next presidential election, regardless whether the VP position gets filled.
