Has anybody been able to land and/or takeoff from the water? My plane pitches & rolls violently and then it crashes. I have tried landing in the water and same outcome. I have also tried different bodies of water around the world, same outcome every time.

Yes, it is possible. I did it at KSEA in a seaplane Cessna Skyhawk (Floats). It was awsome.
There are three things you must remember: speed, speed and ... speed.
Oh...and remember also about hiding a landing gear (default key assignments is G).
Have a nice takeoffs and water landings. Good luck.
