I have the 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. How do I configure it so that the stock keyboard shows up when the stylus is stored and Stylus Beta does when I take it out? Is there a way? It's cumbersome otherwise. Thanks!

No problem. I'm just a user for quite some time and this question pops up every so often... It's been answered multiple times in the archives, but who reads the archives, anyway... :P 

The switching you see in Samsung keyboard is inside ONE app (which happens to provide both script recognition and QWERTY), not switching the IMEs.

Myscript, as far as I know, is focused on providing the users (us ;)) with the best writing experience, they are NOT interested in reinventing the keyboard part again (which they would have to add). They did what they could to let users switch to a different IME using the 'knobs' available from google (effectively Stylus shutting itself down). Switching back would have to be done from this OTHER keyboard one switched to (hence the action bar keyboard button on tablets). 
Google without root allows only invoking the settings dialog for IMEs from a third party app, or shutting down the IME you have now. 

With root, one can circuvent the safety measures and 'force' the IME change. 

Have a look at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ne0fhykLabs.android.utility.kmLauncher, or Tasker. Every one of those apps (the ones which switch any of the settings not exposed by Google to be tampered with) requires root. 

Quite the same thing for e.g. turning GPS on/off -> notice that appls without root say something like 'GPS not enabled, do you want to turn it on now', and if you press YES you don't enable the GPS. You get redirected to the system dialog where you can turn it on. Again, safety measures -> third party app can't control GPS. It only can launch a 'trusted' control from Google itself.
Quite some settings are locked as such. Rooting allows for going around those limits, but well, requires rooting :>

Their customer service is awful. I called on a very cold night when my furnace broke down. I have a warranty on the furnace and asked them to do their part for me to get reimbursed. In a bad manner they told me (many times) they needed me to pay and it's my problem to deal with the other company. Despite paying the premium for a rush service over the weekend, they came the following morning (which I agreed to when they called me later in the night to tell me they wouldn't make it). The technician was well intended and even called this warranty company. I had the Nest thermostat installed. He said he knew nothing about it (?) and, as a temporary fix, he replaced it with the old one. The furnace started working. I told him that I installed the Nest myself and had been working perfectly for over 6 months. He said I would get a call from the office to get it fixed and re-installed. That never happened. I received their invoice with an incorrect statement (it said that the Nest needed a power line that I had not installed, which can't be true because it had worked for over half a year. Remember that the technician admitted he knew nothing about this brand). This made it impossible for me to get paid by the warranty provider. I sent them an e-mail asking them to revise their diagnosis. They never responded. After a while, I received an e-mail from them asking for my payment. I responded explaining my bad experience with them. No response. About 10 days later, they contacted me again. I asked if they had received my previous e-mail. They said they did but they only cared for me paying, as I had received a service. I will never call them again and I hope you follow suit, unless you want a bad experience.
