Terraforming Venus is an interesting idea, but it would be much, much harder than you suggest and there are some inaccuracies in your account that make it sound a lot simpler than it is:
Being further down the gravity well doesn’t make Venus easy to get to. Earth’s orbital speed keeps us orbiting the sun at 1 A.U so in order to fall down the gravity well toward Venus, you must first slow down (thrust away from the direction Earth orbits). Once you reach Venus you have to slow down even more to be captured by its gravity rather than just zooming back to interplanetary space. You can’t just fall to Venus for free or something. like that. It ends up being a bit harder than getting to Mars. It requires approximately 6 km/s of delta-v to get from low Earth orbit to low Mars orbit and about 7 km/s of delta-v to do the same for Venus (Source. These numbers will vary widely depending on the specific trajectory you take). If you want to land and return, Venus is even harder because of its higher gravity and insane atmospheric pressure.
The atmosphere is surprisingly Earth-like at high-altitudes (perhaps this is what you are alluding to?) so some have suggested “cloud cities,” but near the surface Venus is quite hellish and has virtually no available oxygen. Overall, this is the breakdown (note that Oxygen doesn’t even make the cut for trace elements):
It’s not quite tidally locked. The planet itself has a slow retrograde rotation, with a period of 243 days, so daytime on Venus lasts 116.75 days. Earth plants, animals, and humans would all have a very hard time dealing with that, especially considering the next point. (Technically speaking, the atmosphere of Venus is rotating prograde, so the net angular momentum of the whole planet may be ~zero, which is why some people argue it’s tidally locked.)
Venus gets lots more sunlight than us, so it’s really hot. Even if you somehow managed to get rid of all those greenhouse gases, it would still be really bright and irradiating. You’d have to do something to cut down on solar radiation if you wanted to colonize Venus.
