Rivals don't really make sense in Detective Conan, since all the heroes exist to solve crimes they don't really get anything for doing it in opposition to each other. There are the loose detective battle cases but they're rare and usually go back to working as a unit. You can see in some of the opening that they expected more a rivalry among a few characters (opening 5 mostly) but the story line just doesn't facilitate it.
During Clash of Red and Black (more precisely Episode 502 or Chapter 607 in the manga), while Gin tells Kir to kill Akai, he mentions an informer who provided him with the information that the FBI is still at the hospital and that one of their agents (Camel) got involved in a murder case. Is it already known who that person is who got the information for the BO and I somehow just forgot it? Or has this not been revealed yet? Or is this just someone random who's not of any significance and hence will never be mentioned again?
No. That informant thing was never explained in detail. It was probably a low-ranked member sent to stalk out the hospital or the one that was already there, sent after contact with Kusuda Rikumichi was lost and who reported that the hospital was full of FBI agents.
So they probably won't be brought again because it's an irrelevant background character without a visual.
Anbody with a better memory than mine. Conan knows that Amuro is Bourbon, but did ever Amuro told him who he is? I mean, would it be safe for Conan asking Amuro about BO stuff (ignoring for a while that he's a policeman and because of that he can't hurt Conan)?

No, I don't think he's ever said to Shinichi/Conan, "I'm Bourbon."
Any dialogue they've ever had about that has been implicit, rather than explicit (this is DC, after all—any communication that we get to see between Shinichi/Conan and his allies is, generally, definitely not explicit... their communication is so not explicit, in fact, that it's to the point of ridicule and head scratching).
Basically, if there's going to be a scene where they actually speak freely about that matter, it may happen "off-screen," and it may happen during and/or after the case where they finally clash with Rum.
Well, according to 1,029 spoilers, we finally get to see them explicitly, and on-screen (or should I say, on-panel, in this case), talk about BO matters... whadda' ya' know...
Well, okay, Rei/Tōru is definitely being more implicit, here, but he isn't giving Shinichi/Conan a total runaround—and as for Shinichi/Conan... just as you put it in the case discussion thread, Nemomon, he's straight-up asking Bourbon about Rum.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.” “Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.” ― Arthur Conan Doyle, The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and His Last Bow "I have decided to stick to love... hate is too great a burden to bear." — Martin Luther King Jr. (A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr)

It's probably impossible. By the looks of it the guy only had 14 posts and the last one was back in 2008 (re: more than 10 years ago). I'll bet that by now he or she has totally lost interest in the Conan fandom, and even in the show itself. He or she may've even forgotten by now that he or she was ever a member of this website in the first place. I'm presuming you're asking because you'd like to collaborate with him/her on some kind of complex fan project, but I'd have to advise you to just give it up. There are other qualified people here who might be willing to help you out (maybe).
Unshackled lycanthrope as I am, only my appetite matters I'm numb to all but this overwhelming sense of satisfaction Leaning back my head to rest, letting my feral eyes nod off My pants stained by the scarlet trickle leading from the body My heart stops beating, and the razor thin tightrope snaps Helplessly I plunge headfirst into the wrong side of eternity My cup runneth over with bad karma, the pressure building I will never escape the piercing glare of their lavender eyes
