Sorry, Otto Pilot doesn't know how to react when the pilot's arm detached and fell off the control yoke during landing.

Can still use the right hand.
You don't need both hands to operate the yoke.

You don't hv to hold throttle all the time.
Best that you can, but not a must.
Once you set the right level and trim, you focus on the yoke.

Yeah, that's during normal operations. But when there is emergency and pilot needs to control the plane, its dangerous for a pilot with artificial arm

Agree that in the first place, should not allow such pilot.
What i mean is that at such final approach to the runway, esp when there is gusty crosswind, control of the ailerons (with hands or hand) plus the control of the rudder (with both legs), is absolutely critical in keeping the plane stable just before touch down.
