Dear Ahmed
Its quite normal to play and jump and poop. The throwing up , you have to know why, I suggest a vet visit for a regular check up. If you are in UAE you can check out nad Al Shiba vet hospital, they are great.
Also I suggest this web forum, its great and very educational:

A new bird always needs a trip to the vet just to make sure he is healthy. The pooping everywhere and the acrobatic moves sound normal for a new bird in a new home. I assume he is weaned and eating solid food. Make sure you feed him a good organic pellet, fruits and veggies. Give him time to settle in and get used to his new enviroment. But please take him to the vet. You've already got a lot of money invested in him so do everthing you can to keep him healthy.
