comment Proxychains + nmap = segmentation fault
I can't reproduce with 6.46 and proxychains 3.1. Please include output of nmap --version and run your command with -d for debugging output. Do you have the same problem if you run directly without proxychains?

comment What exactly does one get from a Nmap Scan?
As one of the core Nmap developers, I can assure you that in the scan you showed, no ICMP packets were sent. If the target had been on a different link-layer segment (i.e. one or more IP hops away), then ICMP would have been used (among other probes), and no MAC address would be shown. The only way you can get a MAC address and use ICMP for discovery is to add --disable-arp-ping or --send-ip. Even explicitly requesting ICMP Echo with -PE will use ARP for discovery otherwise.

comment What exactly does one get from a Nmap Scan?
Nothing in that output indicates response to ICMP packets. The fact that you see a MAC address indicates Nmap probably used ARP requests to determine the host was up. You can add --reason to see this for certain.

comment How can I create a password that says “SALT ME!” when hashed?
Rainbow tables don't store all the hashes, so you can't just "search through them". They are a specific compression format for finding plaintext for particular whole input hashes, so you'd have to keep generating "satisfactory" hashes until you got one with a "real" plaintext.
