You cannot see this in-game, but you can see it on the wiki:

ah - not seen. Thats perfect! It would be nice, if the whole list of products would be available from a product page.

So you would have here: https://wiki.factorio.com/Inserter a button to this: https://wiki.factorio.com/Data.raw

While the wiki is very good, I also made a tool for myself for this purpose - currently only supporting base game content normal recipes: http://peter.hozak.info/recipe_explorer/, but if I move on from playing vanilla to mods, I plan to extend the tool to include modded recipes + include ratios for planning the number of machines.. Let me know if such a tool would be useful for more people, I might spend a bit more time with it (like study licenses of popular mods whether I can publish something or not) :)

The whole list of recipes using the item as an ingredient is already available, it's what I screenshotted. The second page you linked has nothing to do with what is crafted with Inserters, it's a list of everything in the game. What function would a link to that page serve?

At the bottom of the page you can also find links to all products in the same tab in the crafting menu and links to the other tabs, seperate or all together.

I created a Factorio Item Browser, which may come in handy to check the recipes. E.g. your yellow inserter. (Also supports some of the popular mods (e.g. Bobs and Angels), but may still bug out on those.)

Factorio modding is not like Skyrim modding, you don't spend solid days sorting out, updating, testing compatibility and so on. Most of them just work, and Factorio scans for dependencies and other problems while loading. Unlike Bethesda who just let the chips (and pretzels and whatever else you choose to add) fall where they may.
Either that or it's a beer vat. My vote goes to beer vat.
