At beer pressures, a keg cannot explode. It's designed to take much more pressure - rated to around 120-130 psi. Even at failure, the seals will fail rather than the chamber itself. Failing at standard beer pressures will be as a leak (pinhole or crack). Which isn't to say they can't explode. It's a sealed pressurized vessel - so it could explode or ...
The only time I had liquid enter my line was when I had the gas tube on the bottom, keep the gas tube at the top when you rock and roll and you'll be fine.
You should have a pretty good pressure buildup to stop liquids from coming up the line; although that won't stop excessive shaking from overwhelming the pressure in the gas line. Odds are you have a directional flow valve on your regulator, so you don't have to worry about gas being pushed back. You probably shook the bottle of water hard enough to ...
While it's possible for some to go in that direction, there should be some pretty good positive pressure (especially when it's pumped up for carbing w/ shaking) to prevent anything from going upstream. If your system is designed well, the valves will have flow restrictors that allow only gas to leave the regulator... aside from whatever might get stuck in ...
Liquid nails or rubber cement would work nicely. Make sure that you remove the 'boot' and remove all of the old residue that may be stuck on. I would probably run some coarse grit sandpaper over that afterwards just to create a rough surface for the cement to bind to. That isn't necessary but make sure you clean the area at least.
I've heard liquid nails does a nice job.
I've heard of people using the adhesive for car mouldings to do this. They said its available at most autoparts stores.
Something like this perhapss? http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/3841
Yes, you are correct. Without some other source of C02, the beer will lose pressure as the level drops, and it will stop coming out of the keg altogether soon. Can you post a link to the "5 gallon plastic keg with tap" in question? I can't imagine why anyone would sell a keg that can't be charged, and I've never heard of a 5gal plastic keg vessel either. I ...
