Why is Gervinho’s MOTM orange, if he earned it for his match for Ivory Coast? Shouldn’t it be purple since it’s an international match?

Jose, you are absolutely right.
Gervinho card should be purple because it is a iMOTM card. At least it was like this in FIFA 12 Ultimate Team.
Maybe EA has changed it on FUT 13, standardizing the MOTM and the iMOTM in one unique colour (orange).
Until we are sure, we will keep the purple colour as iMOTM.

Until now, the iMOTM are: Emmanuel Adebayor, Gervinho, Christian Atsu, Alain Traoré, Victor Moses and Siyabonga Sangweni.
In FUT 12 Messi had a special 99 IF card.

How come I cannot find the cards of many young players? Are there cards for all listed players? For example: Insigne (Napoli – Serie A) has not regular card but only MOTM one.

Sorry but we don’t know what you are talking about. We tried to find Insigne and we found dozens of his regular cards.
