comment What is an expression in parentheses in the middle of a phrase called?
AFAIK, square brackets are commonly used by additions done by the editor into a transcripted text (in other words, they are not added by the original author but another person). The parantheses are used by additions done by the writter/speecher in his own text.

comment Are there other words that can't be written? (like sal-le)
Two examples: "salirle al paso" or "salirle caro" in their imperative forms ("sal-le al paso", "sal-le caro"). The imperative form is not very usual, but certainly not extremely rare. Please note that the explanation about sal-le in the external link is an actual response from RAE.

comment What's the meaning of the Mexican expression “se te va el avión”?
As a side note, in Spain we say 'se te va la pinza' with the same meaning. The relation between being forgetful and a leaving plane is clear, but I can't imagine how it can be related to a clothes peg :)
