Cold water cure, than I store them in saturated sea salt solution in the freezer. Still have about a half a gallon left after curing them 2 years ago. Chum
 eggs are best.
 They store perfectly for a bunch of years in a freezer.

When I used roe it was borax or salt but never singles. I vaguely recall one of my brothers making singles by blanching them in a sieve submersed in salted, boiling water for 10 seconds or so then letting them dry. After that it's all a blur but I think he froze them (in borax?). I remember not all turned out - there was some finessing - yet the majority did and fished well, not leaking but keeping form for multiple casts. I recently asked him but either his memory ails him or it's remaining his secret. Might be worth looking into.

They were eggs.   You could squeeze them and stuff would come out but it was  not watery

Lots of people use jello, gatorade, etc because they are essentially a sugar cure. If I recall, you have to add sugar to Kool-aid so it may not make a very effective cure on its own.

As a colouring agent? Probably work fine and I assume there are a huge number of colors to pick from. Combine it with some sugar and borax for the curing and you'll be good to go.

I've gotten one small hatchery hoe off Ambleside over the past week. There are fish there at the right tides, it's getting them to bite that is the problem haha.
Fly or gear?
