Make the loft invisible using the space-bar, and the sketches(3) likewise and you can see how it was modeled.

Re: Swept cut on a cylinder ?

The first type of path can be realised using willfred's method, two sketches extruded to planes and boolean commoned.

The second type can be achieved by projecting a sketch onto the surface (curves WB).

If you intend to work in PD workbench you will need an active body before the sketch can be padded.
