    Items dropped from monsters are capped at 3 sockets in normal and 4 sockets in NM. So, you won't find a 6 socket bow from a monster drop until hell. Items socketed using the socket quest or the socketing recipe are not limited by the cap, no matter what level your characters is. You do however, have to have an item with a high enough ilvl to get the max sockets. For a Long War Bow, this is ilvl 40. You can find these in WSK2 and on in Normal and the Monastery Gate and beyond in NM. (The Pit 2 and Countess Towers 3-5 also drop ilvl >= 40 in NM.) So, your best bet if you don't want to run around in hell is to collect Long War Bows in the above areas and use the socket recipe on them (Ral + Amn + PAmythest + Normal Weapon.) You only get a 1/6 chance for 6 sockets, so it will take a few tries.

    I'll never consider using poison damage. Personally don't like it.

    I think I'll go with OrtOrtOrtOrtOrtThul or IthIthIthIthIthIth

    6 tals is 451 damage over 5 seconds, works quite nicely in normal and nightmare, hell though needs a bit more ummph.

    6 sockets requires ilvl 41+ IIRC so you're only going to find them in Hell. just be sure that the items maximum sockets match what you are looking for.
