OK, then, am I looking for a synonym for "plug" as a verb? or as a noun? or as some other part of speech?

I think that what you are trying for is something similar to this but you need to come up with some way of indicating at least vaguely how the clues relate to each other. Otherwise it's just tedious guesswork, for me at least.

OK, for now, concentrate on the gulp part. The adding and subtracting is last
