I don't think I qualify as any kind of expert, but...

I'd say it's "dysphoric" if it features (as a main theme) a deeply unpleasant mood. Contrast it to "euphoria", which is the other extreme. I wouldn't say feeling angry qualifies as dysphoria, much like amusement doesn't qualify as euphoria.

A mixed state is some combination of depressive and manic features, and can include dysphoria. An example would be having a lot of energy but feeling irritable or thinking "depressive" (negative) thoughts (especially if they are "racing").

I've experienced both.

I wouldn't say so, except for the beginnings of depersonalisation. Or ADHD for that matter. Social phobia was pretty bad back then too, unlike now. But no depression, and nothing that I feel would qualify as (hypo)mania.

No.
