I understand (I think) "nunca" and "jamás". Are they strictly interchangeable? Or are there certain times when one is used and not the other?
I have never been this sick.

I never get sick, ever.

Also, I don't really understand "ni". Is it like "did not even"? Will you also give me some example sentences (again with translations)?

Not even = ni siquiera

Neither = ni tampoco

I know, it isn't what you asked/wanted, but if it isn't of help to you, hopefully it will help somebody else.
