I am actually the last person to advise on music theory but I will have a go.
The fact that you make 3 sound like 5 is not coincidential as the 5 has a triplet in the one beat whereas 3 has two quavers.  1, 2 and, 3 or try 'nice' 'piece of' 'cake'   I hope this helps

you have a notation error
its a super triplet so you need a quarter note triplet equal to 2 beats

you need to write 2 single quarter
then divide ea quarter into 2 eighth triplet

like this

2   3



then

2 lah. Lee. 3 "lah"  "Lee."

then w a super triplet the it becomes

2. Lee.  "lah"

the Lee is the final sub beat of count 2's eight triplet
and the "lah"is the 2nd sub beat of count 3's eight triplet.

you end up with a super triplet noted by quarters that occupies two entire beats or beats 2 and 3 in your chart with beat 1 being the first quarter

see my expanded edited reply.

your chart for line 5

leaves out a beat. There is no beat 3 as written.  My explanation adds your missing beat and gives you which parts of which beat you are counting at all. It is the most complete simple way i  can describe it as it is how was explained to me by my previous piano professor who was also a theory core instructor at the college level and had his dma in composition.

Imagine you have a grid, like in graphing paper.  Say we assign the quarter note for every line in that grid.  If so, the space between two lines would represent the duration of a quarter note.  That means two eighths would fit in that space, also three triplet-eighths would also fit in the same space, and naturally one quarter note would fit in the space.  The size of the space did not change.

Now to clapping the rhythms.  Step away from the piano and use your feet to march, like if you were in a parade.  One step = one line on the grid.  Clap your rhythms while marching.  
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
