I'm pretty sure that hyperconjugation refers to, sort of an inductive effect, I've still yet to research about the triple bond conjugation scenario.

Hyperconjugation is the donation of sigma bonding orbitals into vacant orbitals adjacent to them. It's kind of a reverse inductive effect since it is donation instead of withdrawing.

What do you mean? It's pretty much just like double bond conjugation. But hyperconjugation is very different.
