I’m surprised Regina didn’t think about doing that (putting the heart back inside Cora) on her own. Maybe she didn’t know her mother’s heart was not in her body until she came to Storybrooke? Do we know that?
That is a very good question. Doubtful Regina ever knew that her mother was missing her heart. She probably figured it out later once Cora made it to Storybrooke, since Cora’s heart were always referenced as “things.”

She is rotten to the core. Did you see how she treated her father?!
I didn’t see Cora in that first appearance as being rotten. She was being realistic. I mean, look at the state her father was in when she found him. He was flat drunk. In most cases, when the parent is being the irresponsible one, sometimes an adult son or daughter has to be the one to step up and be responsible.
