The way I understand "banana" is that it refers to a kind of bycicle.

I agree that there are two ways to read the sentence:

1. [ja'chuqmeH rojHom] neH jaghla'.
2. [ja'chuqmeH], rojHom neH jaghla'.

But since TKD clearly explained that at least in this situation, version
1 is intended, I am sure that it answers your question.

Maybe it sounds weird to you, but I see no problem in "truce in order to
talk to each other".

> Could we say the following?

I'm not sure about the English translation, but I see nothing against
{nga'chuqmeH mIw}.
