comment Why is it “mir ist übel” and not “ich bin übel”?
Your explanation is correct. "Mir" is not a word that can do the action. Some textbooks call this construct an "understood" or implied subject. The "es" is implied or understood to be there.

comment What is the difference in usage between “Vielen Dank” and “Danke schön”?
You will also hear "Schönen Dank!" in some of the southern regions, which I guess came as a kind of a reverse combination of these two expressions. :-)

comment What is the difference in usage between “Vielen Dank” and “Danke schön”?
"Danke für das Eis!" would be okay, but adding "schön" seems a bit more awkward.
