I think that at least some of your problem is caused by your choice of papers. If you stick with paper made by your printer manufacturer the paper profiles are available via the printer software. When you use other papers with a printer you need to find the appropriate profiles elsewhere or create your own profiles.

Hardware calibration is the state of the art way to go, no doubt about it... But software calibration can yield very good results too. Before you spend a lot of money on a hardware device get some Canon paper and play around with calibrating your display using software.

One last thing: be sure to select either printer software color management or application management, not both. If both are selected you will wind up with prints that have unusual colors... it might be the reason why you are getting such strange prints.
