Regarding your visa questions: I have heard various things from friends who have travelled in Europe, but I haven't gone for a long stay myself, so I don't know that I have accurate information; I recommend checking with the Spanish embassy or consulate nearest you to verify the rules.

I *think* the 90-day rule for visiting Spain is actually the rule for a continuous stay inside the Schengen area. If you don't have a visa for a stay longer than 90 days, then you have to leave the Shengen area completely, and then re-enter to start a new stay. I don't know whether there is a minimum time you must wait between departure from the Schengen area and reentry into the Schengen area. Going from Spain to another country that is inside the Schengen area doesn't count.
