Yes, it's the same idea, but automated by the mail server, the user does
not do any special action to get the same behaviour as "uploadbin".
For the second question, if I search my messages, if the "link to my
attachment(s)" is filled also with some metadata that describe the
attachment, it's pretty the same. Thunderbird does not search within an
attachment, or i'm wrong ?

In my mind, I don't want change the usual way my users send or receive
emails with attachments, neither send two emails, one with the
attachment(s) and one with the things around the attachment(s).
