Clarifying my understanding

"The main difference with qu'est-ce que is that this alternative form is never followed by the inverted form when using subject pronouns: "  To reword, does this mean that 'qu'est-ce que' cannot be followed by an inversion?

Correct, you use either inversion or qu'est-ce que when asking questions:

Qu'est-ce que tu fais? -- What are you doing?
Que fais-tu? -- What are you doing? (with inversion)
