Minor question - would people use the formal even if the person is not older, simply because you don't know them?

yes, you would use the formal to show someone respect, or anyone that you are not on close terms with. however, if you are a lot older than them, then you can and should thu, but if you're of a similar age, use sibh. hope this helped

How would you say it then, if using "sibh"? (I am just beginning this chapter.)

I believe it would be "cò sibhse?"

What is the difference between "thu" and "thusa"? It's the first time I see "thusa".
