It makes little sense to say that an available action to the left of the action type normally required can't be expended in place of an action to the right is ignoring common sense and is embodying the worst stereotypes of the rules lawyer.
And yet you're wrong when it comes to Swift actions.
You get only one Swift per turn, that's it.
Not sure what the anchor is to get you to the appropriate section, but under the "action type" it says:
Swift Action: A swift action consumes a very small amount of time, but represents a larger expenditure of effort and energy than a free action. You can perform only a single swift action per turn.
