Wow. I hate to sound like a jerk but you pretty much opened yourself up for it.
You do realize that someone who knows everything to answer all questions isn't just watching the forum 24/7 just waiting to answer everyone's questions as soon as they post. Those of us that can potentially answer you questions may just not have had a chance to be on or are possibly contemplating what are the next best steps for you to take.

I would first suggest retracing your steps. I am not sure about the gasket sealant. I have always used it myself but I guess some people would say otherwise. I haven't done this specific maintenance yet on my vehicle so.
Also if the SES light is on its probably best to begin with that if it wasn't there before.

Check for codes, and start from there, might be a bunch of things.

It sounds like to me that you didn't seal everything up. Or go back and check all your vacuum lines, that might be your humming sound. If all fails check for codes, I had the same problem and my manifold wasn't sealed all the way!

Sounds def. like vaccum leaks. You can use carb spray around the intake manifold to search for the leaks. If the idle fluctuates when you spray it, there's your leak!

Yeap, common problem. Happened to me once. Also, if you don't seal the manifold properly, you will have vacuum leaks. You should torque the bolts to factory specs on the coil packs and make sure the connectors click.

Don't know what happened to my comment. But yeah you're rite the bolts should be torque too nissans specifications. I made sure all connections were tight, you know as I do it's hell going thru all of that and half to take things apart again. Question for you. Does it matter if you don't use NGK plugs as the factory did? I brought bosch one's platinum/ fusion 4516.
