i have seen a similar way of changing an adjective into a noun, but instead of SA they use MI. Can i use both? Or is there a special rule for using each of them?

さ is used to express objective properties of something, and み is used to describe perceptions - the way something makes you feel. For example, かさ can be measured with a thermometer; かみ is how warm you personally feel. In metaphorical situations, like the "warmth" of someone's personality, you would use み, not さ.

Hahaha!
たまらない can be used to mean irresistible, such as たまらない (irresistible charm), but also unbearable, such as たまらないさ (unbearable heat). I suspect the second meaning is the intended one, rather than what is indicated by the translation...

Wow, I do not remember putting that in - it must have been a looong time ago. I don't really think it's appropriate, so I'm going to take it out.
