Cut out the assisted pull-ups and just use your BW. You can train your chins/pull-ups by doing negatives every other session. Use a slow rate of contraction on the negs, a four count is good.
Do you know how to clean properly? It's always good to get a lesson or 2 from a strength coach on any power lifts, just for safety if you have any doubts.
Here is a vid of a friend of mine rocking out some cleans supersetted with serratus crunches. Her form is pretty good, I'd like to see a bit more of an arch but her elbow placement is A+.
And for anyone reading this who is looking at fat loss, this girl was about 3 months post partum in this vid. She trained this way for about 4 months and dropped ALL her baby fat, plus built some amazing muscle on the way. No cardio to speak of, just heavy weights and clean eating.

Overall he's still too girly though, IMO.
Finding a good coach is going to depend on where you look. Try a real gym, not a general fitness facility. If you want to learn the explosive techniques of oly lifting, try your local colleges or universities. Most have weightlifting clubs that are open to anyone. We have a local university that trains 3 times a week and costs $200 a year, less if you are student in any school. Or look for a power lifting gym. If you just want a lesson or 2, some coaches will take you on for an hourly rate. I'm warning you though, it's addictive.
Practice cleans in the rack with the bar. The girl in the vid I posted taught herself in a few weeks time. A camera is your best friend, you can review your lifts and see what the issues are after training.
Be sure you lean back on your initial pull with the weight on your heels. Take off your shoes and do them barefoot if you can. I'm deadlifting tomorrow and I'll post some videos, if my form doesn't disintegrate all the hell.

Your on your way. Good that you are sticking to it, have you asked some of the more experienced guys for help or advice yet?
130 on the bench is that for 5 or 1 rep?

For nausea, a better breathing, can you take a video ? We can help you then.
Cut phase (Reducing bodyfat) is for women or really fat men, eat food, lift the heavy barbell.
For your program, are you gaining ? are getting stronger ? If yes then stick to it.
