The only thing that jumps out at me is like was said before the tang stressing in a small tank, even if its a small size, it can still stress, but The params are fine with 0.25ppm. Maybe the ammonia is spiked because of the deaths? If not whatever caused the ammonia to go up, triggered the stress, ich, and snowball affect I'm very sorry, if your tank is cycled then you should be able to keep doing water changed to remove/dilute the ammonia until its 0.

I'm at this point gonna run the tank for 2 months without adding anything and do weekly water changes until I'm confident that the params won't crash again

Ich doesn't just 'appear' because a fish is stressed. It has to be introduced to your system first. At some point you added something that had ich.

As long as there are fish in there, the likelihood is that the ich parasite will persist
