Fallacies make premises invalid, they don't make arguments or opinions invalid. Huge difference there.

No, fallacies make arguments invalid but not premises or conclusions false.

They do however mean that conclusion has not been backed up by the argument and thus needs a different argument.

We're agreeing, but using different terminology. What you call arguments leading to a conclusion I call premises leading to an opinion or argument.
