Namgyal Rinpoche wrote a manual for annapanasatti. Here is a link http://www.bodhipublishing.netfirms.com/
In terms of the practice, Namgyal advocated balance. That is, one should have a certain discipline and structure, but also should not get too hung up on "text book" interpretations of so called "results", but should let the exploration take it's proper course, without "you" or your expectations getting in the way. Here is a story he told that illustrates this:
When he was a monk in Burma, Namgyal, (Ananda Bodhi at the time) noticed an American monk rolling up the mat and preparing to quit and go home. He asked that monk what was going on. The fellow replied that after long and hard practice he had been unable to generate the "nimitta" or sign of completion of the practice he had been doing.
Namgyal asked him " Well ,what was the sign supposed to be?" to which the monk replied, " A blazing sun."
"And what did you get?"
"I only got an out of focus orange."
Rinpoche made it clear that this story demonstrated that ego clinging and clinging to results are the same. Ironic, in that the practice is designed to alleviate ego clinging in the first place. The other monk failed to relax and let the mediation have it's effect, even when the nimitta was emerging.
Lord Buddha had no textbook, no catalogue of what signs were supposed to occur, but he awakened with annapanasatti, by not clinging.
I do not know what the Tibetan word corresponds to the words you mention. But words are only provisional and matter little.
I was once travelling in Western United States. On the map the place I was at was called "THE BADLANDS". It was one of the most beautiful places I had ever seen. Had I set out in search of "BADLANDS" I would have kept going.
The verbal descriptions of the nimmittas are only symbolic suggestions pointing to the actual experience. ""Entering the cave of winds" has a very different feel to " Swimming in a sea of sand" for example, and serves only to point towards, not to actually describe the experience, for which words are inadequate.
In reference to the Burmese story told above, if one had the " Blazing solar orb burns up the netted undergrowth" experience, it would blow 'you' away, and you would have no need to get affirmation of that experience, except to let your teacher know. Presumably he/she would already know!
Further words of advice on this matter, from Namgyal's teaching: If you get stuck on a practice, go back and do the previous level of practice for a while.
Wishing you well,
