I can't judge your mind or read your mind, but did you miss the following two quotes from the Bible?
- Catholic Bibles contain all of the above, but also include the book of Baruch and a longer version of Daniel (with two additional chapters)
- Note: Daniel is never called a "prophet" in the Hebrew Bible!
Did you, in fact, miss those?

("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
“Did you, in fact, miss those?”
What does it matter how long it is in the Catholic Bible when the author doesn’t even believe it was written by Daniel? Unless you think Daniel survived the Babylonian captivity and lived to the times after Alexander, which your author dates him. Same thing for the other prophets. He accepts the modernist interpretation that dates scripture after the events they predict, since, of course, they don’t believe in God.
As for Daniel never being called a prophet. Seeing as how he spoke to God, received answers, same as any other prophet, and received both advice on matters and visions of the future, sounds like he’s a prophet.
