comment Onigiri and nigiri
結び comes from 結ぶ which means to "bind/wrap/tie up". In one sense, it can mean "ending" as mentioned (where it all gets "tied-up"), but it's also a synonym for お握り, probably because they're often wrapped with seaweed.

comment How to say “also” or “too”
Yes, you can make a "tari" form of an i-adjective, but the only time I've really seen them used is in "opposites" or contrast, to say like "some things are X, some are Y". この部屋は暑かったり、寒かったりします。 ("This room is either hot or cold.")
