The set-up card instructs me to set aside "The Curse of the Rougarou" card (which has a different back).

However, later a card instructs me to "place the set aside Rougarou" in a location.

So...is this a contradiction? What card(s) am I supposed to set aside at the start? The Curse of the Rougarou, or The Rougarou, or both?

Not clear to me why the Curse has a different colored back.

Both.

Actually, you set aside the Rougarou monster plus all of the cards with the player back.

Yup, makes sense now. I think the set-up card could have been clearer.

Played two-handed solo game of it and got slaughtered. Both investigators (Daisy and Roland) went insane.

I cannot find this instruction.

Setup Card:

"Set the Curse of the Rougarou encounter set aside, out of play."

The part I missed was "set".

What it means is that you separate all the encounter cards into two piles, sorted between the cards with the wolf icon (Curse of the Rougarou) and swamp icon (Bayou) sets. Set the wolf icon deck aside (this will have the Rougarou and Curse of the Rougarou cards in it). It will get mixed into the encounter deck later. Shuffle all the Bayou cards and this is the encounter deck you start the game with.

I did too the first time.

It wasn't smart to use the same title for both a single card AND the entire encounter set. Too easily confused.
