Thanks David.

1. Here is what I have found:

Onto: If a physical object is being placed somewhere, and nothing is being opened to get to the space, you use onto. e.g. Please put this book onto the shelf. [ A physical book is placed and nothing is being opened on the shelf.

Into: If something has to be opened to get to the space.

So in my example below I am still confused whether to use "onto" or "into"

Please provide your details as I need to add you into or onto our clients' portal.

your details and the portal are not a physical object and it cannot be opened as well.

2. Are you saying login and logon can be used interchangeably?

Do you conceptualize your electronic system as something that you open and put information into or as an object whose exterior you put information onto?

What I explained to you is that neither "login" nor "logon" is a word in the English language. You should use "log in" or log on" instead. Each has a space.
