If I hit an (say) A note together with an E note at the very same time, which note will that be?
#2
It means you're hitting an A note and an E note. If you hit the right notes, you might make a harmony

yeah your just playing 2 notes together. you would be playing 2 notes of a chord.

and woudln't it technically be an A7 chord? E is the 7th of an A

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

a harmony is just any two (or more) notes played together. whether its consonant or dissonant is another question

No;

A chord needs to be a triad and higher.

If a root and the 7th are present, then it doesn't mean it's dominant.

It could be part of an A7, Am7, Am7b5, Am7#5 etc.

You can't just add in random notes that you feel fit.

Besides, A is the Perfect 4th of an E (the other way around, E is the Perfect 5th of an A).

Technically it's called a Dyad.

Nope - if you are playing two notes together, you are playing two notes together - its a dyad like Darren said. Bit like a chord, but only 2 notes.

I'd normally refer to them by intervals (ie the distance between the two notes) relative to one of the notes.

But if you had no idea what I was playing (hitting), what would you guess? an unrecognizable note?

No, because it isn't "a note", it's two notes.
