Should you separate the Deal deck? Just creating dividers and was wondering if there's a valid reason why we shouldn't separate the Agreements from the Debts from the funding etc?

There are effects that cause you to gain a Deal condition, without specifying which one. That said, there aren't many of said effects, so up to you if the value of finding the correct Deal faster usually outweighs the cost of suitably randomizing a generic Deal on the odd occasion you need that.

This seems a bit odd considering a deal could be an horrendous Dark Pact or a lovely Funding, bit of an extreme difference there?

There´s a Mythos Card that
Spoiler (click to reveal)
"Each investigator advances Doom by 1 unless he gains 1 DEAL Condition" so it´s a random deal, so, yes, you can get a dark pact or a lovely funding...

Not to mention Promise of Power is a DEAL as well...

If you have all the expansions, its about 8/33 or 25% (good to bad). If you don't have all expansion your odds aren't too bad of getting a good deal. E.g. if you own signs of carcossa and mountains of madness only, that's about 8/24 or 33% (rough estimate). Not sure which expansion has cards that refer to all deal conditions though.

I don't have the game to hand but I thought Promise of Power was a Boon condition?

I did something similar.

Dividers, but everything alphabetized within each section.
Then I use Eldritch Horror Card Check (https://eldritchhorror.herokuapp.com/index.html) to pick an appropriate card when called for.
Labels on the front of each box show me what is in each section.
