Two questions:

1) Has anyone ever made some kind of percentile graph of the big pools (like deepbit, etc.) ?

2) Is there a max. time (or better max. number of operations) until a block will be found for sure (100%). Or could it happen that the time to mine one specific, nasty block could be millions of years?

slush has this for his pool here, I'm sure there are graphs for other pools as well.

2) Is there a max. time (or better max. number of operations) until a block will be found for sure (100%). Or could it happen that the time to mine one specific, nasty block could be millions of years?
There is no such max time. A block could theoretically take millions of years, the probability for that is positive though unbelievably tiny. The probability that a block will take at least N shares is roughly exp(-N/D) (where D is the difficulty).

1) Do you mean which pools have how much percentage of the hashrate?  If so, here: http://blockchain.info/pools

2) What he said.  Smiley
