Okay; problem 1 is that org formulas are not really vector based: a
range on the left hand side says that each element in the range will be
assigned the outcome of the right hand side so the right hand side
should not be a vector.

Yes, you cannot use @I etc. in the range definition for the target.

I can think of 2 options.  First, you can use relative addressing, i.e.:

#+TBLFM: @<<$3..@>>$3=$1+$2

where @<< means the second row and @>> the second last row.

Alternatively, you can introduce a new column at the start and use the
"Advanced Features" of the spreadsheet described in the info manual

(org) Advanced features

which will allow you to specify which rows should be evaluated (see the
* option).
