Default Mixing and matching microphones: hacking them to work together

I've had the crappiest of luck with any microphone matching.

Well, meaning if I am missing a microphone and I hook up any other microphone to the input, it invariably the sound comes out really weak.

Of course microphone output impedance needs to be matched but what about signal levels. That needs to be matched too but they aren't necessarily indicated.

The other thing is that I would have expected that half of the time the sound should come out weak and the other half of the time when it doesn't quite work, distorted and overmodulated. Am I just that unlucky to always come out too weak?

Or is it simply always bad idea to get a brand X microphone to work with device brand Y?
