  1. Your ionic equation is correct. Since NH4OH is a weak electrolyte (actually it has been shown that NH4OH doesn't exist), I would write the same equation as the net ionic equation. Then if I really wanted to attract attention I would change it to write:
    Fe^+3(aq) + NH3(g) + H2O(l) ==> Fe(OH)3(s) + NH4^+

  2. NiCl2(aq) + LiOH(aq) = NiOH(s) + LiCl(aq)
