Ha ha. I'm pretty sure you can order things online. :) If the medicine is powder, how would I mix it with pelllets?

Okay, I have the Metro Plus and the PraziPro. I'm planning on trying the metro plus first. Is this safe to do with bettas?

I've never heard of anyone using alcohol, mainly because alcohol is made to either euthanise, or preserve.

Here's the best way to make medicated food. Mix a bit of the powder in some tank water, just enough water to make things moist. You want it to be a paste. Coat some of his pellets in this paste and let it dry a little. Then feed. Don't make too many medicated pellets ahead of time, though. Just enough for the day.

He may (probably) find the taste objectionable so you might want to add some garlic juice to the tank water that you mix the powder in.

Well, you are right. He thinks the medicine is disgusting. I'm thinking he did get some of the medicine since he did put the pellets in his mouth before spitting them out?

Hopefully, yeah. Reminds me of when I give my cat pills. Even if he doesn't actually swallow them, I hope that enough medicine dissolves in his mouth during my attempts that he gets some.

Try garlic juice and lots of it. You can use the juice from a jar of preminced garlic or you can mince your own garlic and then mix it with a bit of tank water. Alternatively, you can see if your awesome LFS has Seachem GarlicGuard, which makes things a lot easier.
