Writing a chemical equation with polyatomics and acids

The problems:

(NH4)2S + HNO3 = ? - main problem

LiHCO3 + HClO = ? - check just in case problem


The attempt at a solution:

I think it has to equal H2S + NH4NO3
Or H2S + NO2 + H2O

I've used multiple online chemical balancing calculators and they all give me different answers.

There's also the 2nd problem which I'm 99% sure on but just to be sure. I think it equals

LiClO + H2O + CO2

(NH4) x2 = -2 charge, S = -2 charge + H = x1 = +1, charge NO3 = -1 charge
1. cation 1. anion 2. cation 2. anion
Ya switch the first cation with the second anion, and the first anion with the second cation.
