wow, there's a lot of questions in there. too bad about the puking. what do you think caused it? too much intake?
Your quest for information seems to span three issues, making discussions exponentially more complicated. there's hydration (hydro = water), electolyte supplementation and (i assume) carbohydrate injestion.
For the carbohydrate injestion i'd suggest you check out this site for some good info. http://www.ultrarunning.com/ultra/9/index.shtml
For electrolytes and hydration i think the Hammer Nutrition knowledge site is pretty informative http://www.hammernutrition.com/knowledge/
but i would temper it with some other views like:
armed with that the most important and really only definitive way to figure it out is trial and error. you have a good start on that because you now know one method that does not work. Be sure to review what you did and (i'd suggest) begin to keep a journal. relying on memory is a bad way to use the trial and error approach.
The story goes that "Thomas Edison failed more than 1,000 times when
trying to create the light bulb". (The story is often told as 5,000
or 10,000 times depending on the version.) When asked about it,
Edison allegedly said, "I have not failed 1,000 times. I have
successfully discovered 1,000 ways to NOT make a light bulb."
