Seems the starter button you got is defective. Should not have continuity until depressed.
As to the key switch with starter terminal, it will not work with the original solenoid unless you add an extra relay.
Also it is a bad idea to bypass the neutral safety device. I have not been run over by a tractor, but I have been run over by a truck. I can guarantee you do not want to get run over.
Best to return the starter button and get one from a reliable source.
