3. This is not the first time I am having problems with NetworkManager
here on Debian, so I think I will get rid of it. The question is how
switch between available WiFi connections without NetworkManager.

You can either (i) use wpa_supplicant directly (this has already been
noted in the thread) or (ii) use wicd.

I would encourage you to try wicd and switch to wpa_supplicant in
roaming mode if you are not happy. It works perfectly with eduroam and
provides a ncurses as well as a gtk gui.
